Front tire presure?

I just got a new front tire, and don't know what pressure to run. Right now I have it at 36 and it feels great in the neighborhood, but I don't know how it will feel out in the real world.

Whatever the sticker on the frame says, or in your owners manual.

Assuming you have the stock size on there, the pressure is determined by vehicle manufacturer recommendation. It is based upon a variety of factors including vehicle weight. Too low and you risk a blowout, too high and you lose traction.

Seriously - check the tire placard. Thats what you should run.

Owner's manuals available here: http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp

And it looks like in your case....yep - manual says 36 front/42 rear.

Maybe I'm overly about that kind of stuff, but working for Goodyear for 10 years will do that to ya...

Bevo,

I think that you’ll really like the BT016. For aggressive riding, you could drop the pressure down to around 33psi front and rear to let them work more. You should be sure to re-inflate to the placard pressures (36 front - 42 rear on the 600RR) for everyday riding/commuting.



Thanks,
