012ss-pressures

I know this has been done to death in a "general what pressures people use",I'd just like to hear from all the people using 012ss's what pressures they are using on the road-before i high side myself out of orbit!Thanks for your patience!!

32.5/36

When I used the tire pressures recommended by Ducati (32.5F/36R) for my 916 on my favorite road on 24C days, I got exactly the 10/20% target pressure increase on a set of Bridgestone BT-012SS. So I guess I'm an average rider and the BT-012SS runs at an average operating temperature compared to other brands.

Having done a search through this message board and the old one,some people seem to run higher FRONT Pressures than rear.This is what i'm trying to get my head round!I was running 32/36 cold when i took it out the other day and thought it was trying to kill me!This is with a 120/70 and 180/55.

Rich,

I'm running 33 front & 35 rear on my 012's and have found them to be twitch-free so far.

Not saying I'm a fast road rider by any means and pushing the front to it's limits but I am getting shred and the 'orange-peel' look on the rear so it's obviously being pushed to some degree.

R your susp' settings okay (knowing this question is full of many different variations etc)?

Gc

Each to their own but I always thought that recommended settings had the rear with a higher pressure than the front.

I run my sps 32f and 34r without any drama's,especially after i had the suspension set up by AJR.What effect does it have to the handling by going up in pressures apart from a harder ride?
