Going to the track Stocky, from what I understand for the Street front sag should be between 35 and 39mm (so you were spot on before) and the rear should be between 36 and 40, but it all depends how you ride I suppose

My bike feels horrible at those pressures on the street, I run 35/37 (almost exactly the same as my sag settings)

That rear is considerably lower than the stock recommendations of 36/42.
Is the reduced pressure for more feel where the higher pressure would offer better tyre life due to them not getting as hot?

I did find it strange that solo and two up tyre pressures are the same.
On my SV1000S the recommended is 36/36 for solo and 36/42 with a pillion.

When life throws you curves, lean into them.
