Not entirely true. Running that much in the rear will square it off in no time. Run 30 on the street and you're under inflated imo.Originally posted by Ernie
There is no right air pressure. If you ride on the street, minimum is around 30 front and 31 rear, I personally would use (on the street) about 33 rear, 32 front. 36 rear and 34 front will get you better tire mileage and a less traction. 40 front and rear will give you great tire mileage and very poor traction.
Entirely true. Air pressure is as much taste as anything else. The more pressure the easier the bike turns and the less traction and best wear. Period.Originally posted by Unobtanium636

I run 35 and 37. Max is 40 front and 42 rear I believe. The best thing is to try various pressures and see what you like. I run what I run because I'm fairly big at 6'3 and 220lbs. Keep in mind too that all these temps are cold tire temps - taken either before riding, or after the tire has had a chance to cool down.
