For what it's worth, having just purchase a pair of PR4s for my Glee (yet to fit them!) I emailed Michelin about this, and they say "The pressures we recommend tally with the bike manufacturers we manufacture our tyres to work in tune with many different vehicles as part of the suspension/steering/power train and as such the pressure is set by the bike manufacturer to provide the characteristics of the bike."
Boilerplate text obviously, but a starting point at least.

Collected my new boots today to fit this afternoon. Looking forward to giving them a try.
Trail front, Road rear.
Incidentally, was told the rears, whether Road or Trail, are identical compounds, only the tread pattern is different.

Well I went out done 100 miles much better than the Bridgestones. Nice ride and I didn't notice any moving about with the front wheel when I hit the road banding if that's what it's called lol the tar bit when they do road repairs as when you hit it with the Bridgestone on the front wheel went everywhere lol. 👍

They will really show their worth when you go out on wet roads, it takes time to realise just how much more grip you have underneath you..

Had a brief spin today on my new PR4's, strangely the bike seems somehow taller.?
Front does tip in quicker as has been mentioned, looking forward to giving them a thorough testing with a quick lap of Europe in the next few weeks.  :grin:

I got used to the faster tip in within a few miles, it's an improvement I find as the bike is just as stable on the road. :thumb:

Had my PR4's fitted just before a lap of Europe, after 2500 miles all I can say is thank you Michelin.
What a difference from the standard teflon coated rubbish, these things stick like Velcro.
Great tyres  :thumb:
