The book says 33, it's working so far. I'm no canyon carver but I do alot of triple digit sweepers.

MV Ultra Take the ride!

Same here...33....for fast street riding. I've used Pirelli, Bridgestone, Michelin....I've been quite happy with grip and wear.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I must admit I go a fair bit lower, I run the front about 26 and the rear 28 or 30 depending on how I feel, but that's not just my MV, I do the same with my Ducati

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!


No MV's in the garage anymore

My only suggestion is that I'd not go as high as 36 for the rear.

I run 33 on mine. But I was told the other day when fitting new tyres to my car that if you are running higher pressures, and your tyre temps fluctuate more due to enthusiastic riding.....you should look at having them nitrogen filled.
Any thoughts??

When I went to school about 78% of air was Nitrogen. When the tyre is on the wheel I'd consider it to be a sealed unit containing air at atmospheric pressure. It's going to have 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen and 1% "Not very important to this discussion". Is this guy suggesting that bringing the tyres pressure up to around 33 PSI with 100% nitrogen is going to benefit the user?
Ash, I don't see any benefit in that.

The only good thing about 100% nitrogen is that it doesn't escape like oxygen. Nitrogen molecules are a lot larger than oxygen. That's why all race cars use it. Not sure if race bikes use it though.

Nitrogen is a nice profit center for bike shops (and some car dealers and tire centers as well). Waste of your money in my opinion, but the theory used in promotion is valid.
