Tire pressure

Hey guys... Im not so good about tire pressures so i have a question. What is the proper pressure for 2CTs on a 07 CBR1000? I dont know if it matters but im 6'2 and 190lbs. Thanks for the help!

Normally they will be between 36 to 38 psi but it is something that everyone has different thoughts on and all good reasons.

on my 06 1k i run the front at 38 psi and the rear at 42 psi and for good reasons i do a lot of kms i find this helps with tyre life.

If it is going to be used on the track then you would run a different tyre pressures again.
Hole that helped

If you are on a race track 30 lb's cold front and rear,On the road you can go more maybe 36 lbs' even up to 42 lb's in the rear if you are riding two up.The lower the pressure the more side wall flex you get and the tyres heat up more and become stickier but the downside is they wear out quicker.Hope this helps.

It wont make to much of a difference at those speeds. I always run the same psi unless i am doing a track day or doing a road trip

We do 38 and 38. Feels solid for cruising around 100.

I'm running 36 front (max recommended) and 40 rear on the street. Feel good. Watch tire pressure in cold weather, if the front is low, tire will flatten and be more prone to hydroplaning. I had to drop the front to around 29 to get any kind of grip when I was at Summit recently. My Q2's were much better than the 2CT's, and I only had to drop them to 32/32.

for street riding I like 33/36 or 34/37, on my zx6r and my 1krr. I have a riding buddy who's 6'2" and hefty (I'm a gal, 5'5") and we run the same pressures on the street. I'm sure his tires see more sidewall flex than mine.

track depending on how hot 31/31.
