Tire Pressure

(first)
I've got Michelin Pilot powers (as I'm sure many of you do) what would you guys recommend for pressure on the street? Not really looking for economy, just grip and feel. On a 04 zx6rr.
I know a lot of people say 42f-36r but I have mine a bit lower than that.

I ran about 32/32 when I had pilot powers and pilot power 2CTs. I always found the recommended pressures to be way to high. Keep in mind, you won't get quite as much life out of the tires with the lower pressures, but if tire life is your biggest concern you should be buying different tires IMO.

34 front 38 rear is what I run and so far I have great traction and decent wear with over 2K miles on them.

If I'm on the highway or just cruising around 36f/38r or a little higher.

Having fun in the corners? 30/30
