Tyre Pressures

Recommended Posts

Hi, can someone give me the correct tyre pressures for running on Tarmac. I've just hand two road legal tyres fitted and they have come back with 35psi in the rear and 25psi in the front. Not too sure what the book says but they seem a little high for road use.

OK Thanks, I'll give it a go, I had 20psi for in mind so I guess 18/20 is about right.

Thanks again.

Some tires need 30-35psi to seat bead at installation.  Owner's manual for XR250L says 22psi front and rear.  230 is 50lb. lighter, so 18-20 sounds about right.  Off road, you can run 6 to 10psi depending on tires and tubes.

Well thanks for the replies, I did check what the manual suggests and apparently they should both be 150kpa (never heard of it) but it transpires it equates to 21.75psi, which is more or less what everyone has suggested, so I will go with that.

Happy Days.
