Pilot power Track psi..Monte from STT says...

"35 front and 34 rear is my pick. Seems that guys insist on running them lower for "mental" reasons... and they'll work there but won't last as long as at the higher PSI

The Pilot Power front is honestly the best front tire I have ever used as far as feedback and predictability. Now I'm no supa-star so consider the source...but IMO if you fall on your head because you lost the front using a pilot power you REALLY screwed the pooch... it just doesn't happen unless you're careless or the bike is set up way, way off the mark."

And they thread it's from...

Funny, that. Last time I did a trackday with STT Monte told all the PP people to run 30/31 (at Mid O in Apr).

Sounds right to me. Same with the Pirelli Diablo Corsa. Did some research with the Pirelli guys at a track day once, and running the tires at 34f/36r really made the tires last longer. With the lower psi, they were getting too hot and melting. Seems like street/track day tires are not designed to run as high temps as the higher performance tires.
