    Please forgive the kindergarten question chaps, but what tyre pressures should I be running in my 2018 CR?
    I don’t have any manual etc with me right now...

    EURO4 service manual says 34 psi front and 38 psi rear. Or 2.34/2.62 bar.

    That sounds about right. It's a pretty heavy bike, so it's going to put a lot of heat into the tire if you're riding it hard enough. I don't think I'd start out with any less than 30 in front and 32 in back, cold, and check the pressure rise after the first practice session, looking for 5 or 6 psi rise when hot. Even better, if there's a vendor for your brand of tire at the track, start with whatever they recommend.
