Hey guys,

Got my stock tyres on still, havent ridden in about 3 weeks, figured I should probably b-line straight to the petrol station and pump up my tyres.


what pressure for the front and rear (it's winter in melbourne australia right now, so cold tyres is an issue)



(PS: when these tyres wear out, what would be a good replacement)


cheers

Hi mate winter in Melbourne your having a laugh! Does that mean putting on a sweater now and then? or maybe a T shirt under the leathers.
I've just come back from a ride out in good old blighty. Sun out when I went out, hail and thunder on the way back soaked through cold and wet.
Only pulling your leg tyre pressures as normal 29psi front and rear solo and 33psi rear with pillion.
Ride safe just keep an eye on them as during a proper cold period they can loose a little.
As for recommended replacements best ask some of the others on here I'm on the OEs I'm not sure what the issue is with them can some one explain please.

yeah pretty much just a hoodie under the riding jacket. to give melbourne some credit, i've had the rear wheel slip out a few times with some spirited throttle action at the start of a ride.

so 29 front and rear?

Yeap! That's the doosey. Depending on where and with what you check your pressures for example supermarket forecourt air pump, not very accurate. Specialist tyre gauge of your own, best bet! You could always drop the rear by a couple of PSi if its slippery, like they do off road for better grip.
What's the law in Aus about tyre pressures? here you are allowed a couple of PSi either way as a safety measure if the local plod what to get picky.
