I just got my new pirelli diablo's put on and was wondering what type of tire pressure you guys would recommend for them for normal street with twisties ........ Thanks

i'd say most members would recommend, say between 30-34psi for aggressive street riding and twisties. the less pressure the more surface area on the pavment. there are some that also like different pressure between the front and back. i personally run pirelli dragon super corsa's medium compound (i think SC-2? i forget) run 32psi front and 32psi back for mildly agressive street riding.

ok , but what happens when the tire gets hot the final pressure could be real high would you say . Lets start with 30 after an hr of riding i could see maybe 35 or 40 depending on outside temp. Do you think this plays any factor.

In my text books for automotive it says an increase of 10 degrees F will increase pressure one PSI. So if you set your tires at 32 psi cold, and ride around and heat them up, say 30 degrees F over ambient temp, you'll be running at 35 psi. Now if they're filled w/ nitrogen you don't have to worry about temp changes.

I run Diablo Corsas 36 rear 34 front. I have run this since I have had them, good grip and good wear. I have ridden them over 3000 miles and no flat spot. I hit a good bit of twisties with them as well, but I like this pressure combination. I am 215 pounds as well on a Gix 750. Try it out.

Anyone use nitrogen? I asked at a local tire place and they said they have never tested it on a motorcycle.
