I run 34-34 on the street and 32-32 on the track. You sacrifice a little bit of the longevity for extra grip that we definitley need on our shitty azz roads. BTW I have Pilot Powers on the bike now.

what kind of tires are you running?

Tire size, bike and rider weight have a lot to do with how much air pressure you should run.

I haven't ran Shinkos so I personally can't help you on this. If you can't find any decent pressure settings, then use your recommended OEM settings as a baseline and go from there.

But what about any rule of thumb with city riding... should the tire pressuer be max or a little less for like better traction or is there no difference?

There is no "right" or "wrong" answer. Each bike/tire combo will be different (to a degree). I try to run the spec pressures on the street, because they work fine for me (36/36-42) and I get great milage out of the Diablo's. On the track, I went with Pirelli's suggested 31/32 and it works great for me. I have tried playing around with the pressures for trackdays, but lower pressures shred the tires, and with higher pressures, the tires take too long to heat up. So I don't mess with what works anymore.

Totally, agree. Different for all tires. On Pilot Powers riding on the street, I go with around 34f/34r. At the track this past Saturday, I was running Pilot Race at was using the suggested 32f/22r and it was working out great. (Yes, that is 22 rear.)
