I have set of Michelin Pilot Powers on my 2002 Daytona and run pressures as follows:
Front - 34 PSI
Rear - 38 PSI
I've done 10,000Km with the front tyre and it still has approximately 2,000Km left on it. I've done 2,500Km of hard riding (in Tasmania) and it has hardly worn. My brother has a '98 Daytona and fitted Pirelli Diablo's on it for our Tasmania trip. The rear tyre on his bike was vitually destroyed at the end of the trip.

Like John, I'm running these at 33/34 psi front and 38 rear during the cooler months downunder (daily av. max around 14/15 C). 36/42 are just too hard.
Agressive sport riders have got 6 000 km out of a rear; or 8 000 more gently.

I run 36F and 42R.
I've just changed the rear at 7,000Km and the front has done 7,500 with around another 2+K in it.
I think that riding style and road surface is a big issue. I tend not to "push" the front through corners by getting on the throttle early in the bend. I attribute that to the life in the front.
This also affects the life of the rear if you're gassing up early while leaned over.
The roads here are not too rough either.
