Re: Yamaha R6 2017, Dunlop tires
The VIN label for my '08 R6S says 42 front and rear IIRC.
I believe the suspension responds better at those pressures, versus the high thirties I was using before.
Suspect higher pressure may be beneficial for preventing headshake.
As a general rule, higher pressures mean improved responsiveness, less tire wear, less traction.
Lower pressures generally mean increased traction, more wear, less responsiveness, increased potential for failure.
