Just curious what you guys pump your tires up to. I'm familiar with what the service manual says for the front and rear but I'm open to suggestions or advice as to where I should have it?

Everyone has their own preference and will swear the bike feels better under those pressures. I usually do 31 both front and rear....when tire is cold.

First welcome to the forum.
Second, take some time and say HI in the new members area.
A little about yourself, past bikes and the present one.


The manual pressure is really for the stock tires.
From that point really depends on what tire your running.

The cup's I run 28 to 32 front, rear is 22.
OH, that's on warmers.


Lastly, no pictures it didn't happen.

Bar really.. Don't remember the last tire gauge I saw that had a Bar scale.

I'm sticking with what the manufacture recommends for a starting point.
Then looking at the tire for Hot or cold tearing.

How often do you all fill up your tires? The reason I ask about tire pressure is I filled mine up and over the course of a couple days riding they lose a couple pounds of pressure. Does this sound normal or like an issue with my tire/ rim?

Could be rim.. do a complete inspection of the tire in question. Found a long staple in mine.

No nail etc, then some water with liquid dish detergent. brush over any area like the rim, sidewalls and filler. You should get small, foamy bubbles.
