You need to bring that rear pressure down unless you are hauling some heavey women on the back of that thing.

Hmmm, I was just hunting around the model specific forum and Honda got the rear pressure wrong on the swingarm.

Time to let some air out before heading home from the office.

Not that i know man. I wasnt sure what PSI to run as i havent really tinkered with the pressure in my streetbike tires but i do know that when i had my Cobra, i would run less in the rear than front for traction and even in my dirtbike i run less in rear than front so i would assume it would be the same concept for streetbikes as well. I just wanted to get the best pressure to run for all around street riding.
