What pressure do you all run in your front and rear tires? I've got Pirellis and it doesn't seem to have it on the tire anywhere. It says:

120/70 ZR-17 M/C (58W)

Right now I'm running 26F/36R

I think the front is a little low

I was looking hard at the Acu-Pressure caps, but I'm concerned that they might be susceptible to leak (even lose air) because the pin in the tire valve is always pushed in. Some plastics don't age too well and cracks develop over time...is this too anal?

On my Dunlop 208ZR tires on the 888 I run 32/36. On the Avon AV45/46 sport touring tires on the ST2 I run 38/41. The Avon tires are designed to run at higher pressure and still get great traction. It also helps them last longer than other tires.

It's really best to find out what the manufacturer recommends for a particular tire.

26F is way low.

This time of the year here (NorCal), I'll run 31F/34R. 32F/36R in the summer and 29-30 F&R at the track. Just guidelines... but you should really look at what your tires are telling you...
