I just put on a set of Michelin power pures (120/70 front and 130/70 rear) and was wondering what tire pressure everybody's running.

IIRC, the service manual says something like 22 psi front and 28 psi rear. So far I have kept it around that and have no complaints. Mine were a bit low from the dealer, so I definitely recommend making it one of the first things people check on a new bike.

That's what I ran the stock tires at. I didn't know if the tire size made a difference or not

I'd probably go 26ish front and 32ish rear with those sizes, but I think you have a lot of play in those numbers. You could experiment with it too, start low and work your way higher and see how it feels. I usually like a bit higher than the recommended for motorcycle tires.

Did you have any fitment problems or did everything go right on nicely without mods?

I'm running 24 in front and 27 in rear right now. Feels a bit quick to turn. Nope they fit perfecto. Pretty sure a 140/70 will fit the rear.
