What is the correct tyre pressure

Can anyone tell me how I work out what is the correct tyre pressure for my Conti sport attack tyres ?

Thanks

Should say max pressure on the side which will be to high lol, goto there website and see if they have listings. If they are usual 180/55-17 , 120/70-17 then I use 32 f and 36 r, on my S4r with michelin pilot powers awesome tyres.

I find its best to use the same gauge each time and stick with a constant pressure then u know how they will react in a given situation

Homework time:

Search for all posts by Shazaam! with 'Tyres' as the keyword.

He lets us know how to find the right pressure yourself (but probably not at this time of year!)

I've got this theory - which might be total tosh - that it depends what bike the tyres are on. I used to use 32F/34R with the Diablo's on my ST which lots of others were recomending but I found them a bit squirmy and soft. I'm now using 34F/36R and it feels much better, I put it down the the fact that the ST is around 20Kg heavier than a 916, 748, 999 etc, so the extra weight would deform the tyres a bit more hence the need for a touch more pressure.

Same size tyres and fitment as mine (Mich Pilot Sports)
31 F 37 R works just fine.

In summer I use 32 - 33 front with 36 - 37 rear.
Now I'm useing 28 - 30 front with 30 - 32 rear.
I find my road pressures suit my track riding as well although racier tyres sometimes seem to need lower pressures.
