BTW: When I picked up my Tuono from the dealer two weeks ago, I asked how much air they put in the tires. The mechanic said that he found the bike worked best with 40lbs in the front.
Has anyone heard of such a thing? I've never ever put that much in a sportbike's front. (I have Dunlop 207 RR's on my Tuono)

WHat presure do some of you folks run?

38 in the rear and 33 in the front works great for that tire.

32/36

at 40psi, that tire will not last as it expands when it gets hot!

2.25-2.3 kg/cm2 front
2.75-2.8 kg/cm2 rear

Just thought some metrics were missing ;)

Riding position on the Tuono doesn't put so much weight on the front, so there is really no need to overinflate it. At 2.5 kg/cm2 the feedback and feel was poor and uninspiring...
