Tire Pressures M7RRs

Post by JGA » Sun Jul 30, 2017 8:03 pm

Hi
I believe the manual gives 36 and 36 psi. I am currently runnung 36 rear and 34 front. The front feels fine but I think the rear could be lower for the twisties. What are you guys running.

I find the back goes squirmy if too low. I run 34F/38R

32 / 30 or even 30 / 30

Anything above caused rear slide

Ever notice how much opinion variation you see when the topic of tire pressures arise on bike forums? It's like 'best oil' discussions. It REALLY depends on YOUR riding style, road/weather conditions and riding priorities. I don't tour nor commute and tire mileage is secondary to edge-grip for me. So, I found that 32 front and 30 rear worked well for hard-leaning with M7RR's in mountain twisties (I weigh about 195 dressed to ride). I have since switched to Supercorsa's for more edge-grip and run them at 29 front and 26 rear for curve riding. YMMV

Always a hot topic.

I learned here that it may be better to run off set PSI....Currently I run 34/34 but I think I might try going to a 32 Frt, with 30 in the Rear.

I do my fair share of commuting, though getting high mileage isn't a big concern. I don't normally have any Chicken Strips left on my rear tires edges, so maybe I could benefit from letting that rear tire squish a little more with lower PSI

Say you want to achieve a certain lean angle with a given rider mass, how many pressure variations can be there realistically? One?

Probably so (an 'optimal pressure' for a given scenario) although I'll stand by my reference to 'opinion variation' simply because multiple PSI recommendations can be commonly seen in posts due to mass variation, rider inability to find the optimal pressure, tire wear, temperature, etc.

Most people are going to run different pressures ...as has been said ..it depends on weights and riding styles and even types of roads ... i am running 34 and 34 atm 95kg in gear ...is that wrong ?? i don't think its too far out if it is ..i have been playing with it and adjusting it ..and still am ...if its much more in the front it feels out and not as friendly on my roads ...but it could be a touch less and still fine .. you just need a good tyre pressure gauge...an accurate one lol ..and play with it a bit ...no one on here can tell you an exact pressure to run ...
as we all have different weights and variables
just my 2 cents

This pressure gauge is one of the very best...I love mine!

I use 33-34F/35-36R for solo riding and 34/38 for full load on Greek crappy roads. However I run on custom suspension setup.

What suspension has to do with tire pressure?

As I said above, to achieve a certain (big) lean angle, you will likely end up dialing it down.

I'm not sure if it is relative or not however I noticed that different rebound settings work best with slightly different tire pressures.
