Part of the scrutineering process at SBS is checking and adjusting tyre pressures. I asked the official what pressures he was putting in my tyres and his reply was 30lb front and back - same for all bikes! Given that this is considerably lower than my normal I asked him the rationale. His reply was that manufacturer's recommended pressures were influenced by concerns about tyre life whereas the only concern at SBS was maximum traction. I also figured that maybe the sort of work tyres do on the track would heat them up and increase the pressure more than everyday road riding. So I checked my pressures yesterday before and after a 2-hour, reasonably spirited ride. The result: front increased by 2lb, rear by 3lb. I had expected a lot more difference. Any comments about tyre pressures? Cathar said something recently about Pilot Powers liking more pressure? Does that help steering, traction, comfort, longevity?
