Tyre pressure.

Hi all, I'm new to the H2 (got my new bike last Wednesday) and I'm wondering what tyre pressure to set the book says front 36 psi and the rear 42psi, I used to set 36 front and rear on my Tuono and Mt10. I need the setting for normal road work not competition. Hope someone can help, rgds Stu.

I set my bike's tyre pressures by the book Stuart, both for LSR and road use. I'm using the OE Bridgestone RS10 and have never had any problems or reason to change the settings.

Other owners use different rubber, they might offer some insight.
