Target working pressures for Pirelli Supercorsa Diablos would be 34-36 PSI front and rear HOT. I imagine its similar for the other Supercorsa tyres although I wouldn't want to bet on it.

Get the vernier gauges out and check clearances. It's the only way to be sure about the bore and the piston itself. If both are within limits then new rings should be the sum of it.
