Default Tyre pressures?

I run my tyre pressures at 33psi front and rear as per Manufacturers recommendation but wonder if those pressures are based on Italian weather......my question is that should I be altering those figures for extreme winter temperatures?

The shop where I bought my MV told me 36psi in the front and 40psi in the rear but I live in NSW, Australia and it was about 35 degrees Celsius yesterday and it isn't even Summer yet!

Wendy, those pressures are probably too high. Check the manual and if all else fails, try the tire manufacturer recommendations. FWIW, the 312R runs 33/33.

I am living in the Pacific Northwest and ran 33 psi F/R for part of the summer and it felt pretty good. On the recommendation of the local Pirelli dealer I switched to 34 psi front and 38 psi rear. Overall I like the feel a bit better with the higher pressure.

I was thinking the same thing a few days ago. I run 33 front, 36 rear with the Dunlop Q2's that were on the bike when I got it but I've been slipping around a lot in this cold weather (30-40 degrees fahrenheit) so I might try 33 rear as well.

I've never had a problem but thought I'd ask to see if different pressures would help in our typical UK winter conditions

I also note that MV advice 42psi rear ,36 psi front for high speed riding but this is above 300km/hr lol
