Are you running with owners manual tire pressures? The K5 manual says 36 front/42 rear. Both tires have 42 max on the sidewalls. Give me some tips on this, please. especially for street riding, no track for me.

I have tried some different combinations. I found ( as I have found on all the bikes) that dropping the pressure means adjustments to rebound and compression as well. In the uk for motorway riding (boring and straight) 39 35. Twisty roads ( only come with bumps and pot holes I'm afraid in England) 36 33. And track days, well only done one at the moment on the GSXR at 34 32. the lower the pressure the more road I can feel, the higher the pressure the less resistance I get. Just mess around with different pressures, part of the fun is not having a clue what your doing, heh heh heh. H
