    34f 36r will always be a safe middle ground for road tires. See how they feel and wear and if you need to change, play around with one tire at a time. 1psi increments.

    I'd say this assumes you're riding without a pillion. With one, 36f 41r according to the manual.

    I'm 14st (in old English) and often ran this pressure. Only thing I found with these metz on the road is when ridden hard and only coming out of roundabouts (not something the people across the pond have) you could get the back to really step out, enough to take my feet off the pegs on occasions unless the TC was 5

    If I ran 33-34 rear it didn't do it as much and tc could be 3-4 but it took longer to warm up and was slower turning

    Its funny how 3 psi really can make a difference

    What a small world, Birky! Just the other day I watched your Cadwell Park clinic aboard the Tuono Factory. So so good!

    On my 17 factory, Pirelli SC's, I run 33/36 street and 32 / 30 track.
    Those pressures seem to work really well for me. (220 lbs - no idea how many 'stone' that is
