Michelin Starcross 5 Soft Reviewed

Comments (1)
  1. Hey Kris,

    Thanks for the great write-up! I am about to grab me a set of Starcross 5s in soft for my YZ125. Regarding your recommended 13-14psi tyre pressure, I have always wondered when this pressure should be set. If it is to be set before riding, would the operating pressure of the tyre not vary a lot depending on the temperature and riding conditions?

    For example, where I ride the temperature at midday can rise significantly compared to the morning. So if I set 13psi in the cold morning, who knows what it might be at midday? Is there any sort of “operating pressure” that I can maintain throughout the day’s riding? Or is this not really a concern and I can feel free to set in the morning and forget?

    Many thanks,
    Lewis
