I've never been able to get a real clear answer on what pressure people use on their street tires. I'm running just basic Dunlops on my CBR and I'm doing 40 in the front, 36 in the back, when the tires are cold. Some say it's too much, some say it's about right, some say it's right when they're hot, some say cold, etc. :screwy:

I would drop it 5 pounds in the front and leave the rear alone. 40 is way to high.

I run my 9R about 5#s light from what Kaw told me to run! Otherwise it just feels to edgy when riding on the h/w!

I run 36 in front and 42 in the rear. I don't do hard enough riding to really tell a difference of a few lbs, so I just put in what Honda recommends which is 36F/42R

Which Dunlops are you running? Do you ride two-up? Do you do much long distance highway riding? How warm is the weather? There are a lot of variables to consider when determining what pressures to run. You should always check your pressures before you ride and adjust them according to the conditions. Don't just set 'em and forget 'em...
