I go with 2.1 bar front and 2.2 back (2.3 - 2.5 with a passenger) in my M600 .

32 front, 34 back. If you take a passenger, put a few more pounds in the back.

What Scott said. The number on the tire is MAX pressure, not recommended.

Can someone translate "2.1 bar and 2.2 bar" into English? What are those values in PSI?

2.1 bar = 30.45792 PSI
2.2 bar = 31.9083 PSI

It seems to depend upon the tire. I ran the manual spec'd 31/33 in my Dunlop 220's and wound up with a prematurely cupped front. Someone else on this board with the same tires said he ran 38/36 and didn't have that problem.

Try and find some way to check with the tire manufacturer to get their input.

In cooler weather(in other words, always) I run 30 front, and 28 rear. Tires don't last as long, but they sure do stick. I've tried the recommended pressure, but like the feel better with less air.
