I have an '08 R6 with the qualifiers. I recently read here that the recommended air pressure of 36 front and 42 rear is based on having 2 riders aboard and should be less for only one rider. Made sense to me so I lowered the front to 30 pounds and the rear to 35 pounds thinking I would get a larger contact patch. The first ride(not riding any harder than usual on my regular twisty section) I lost the front end, felt my boot scraping the ground and fortunately popped the bike back up and was ok. Does anybody think this was related to the new air pressure or just maybe hit an oil patch or something?:confused:
