    Default Tyre Pressure

    Hi All, I have Jawa with 3.25x16 tyres. What is the ideal air pressure that we need to maintain for front and rear type for both solo and double ride. ?

    Currently I am maintaining 18 PSI Front.. 28 PSI Rear. Pls suggest.

    Model: TVS VICTOR GLX
    Tyre Size F: 90/90-17
    Tyre Size R: 90/90-17
    Tyre Pressure F: 28 psi
    Tyre Pressure R: 33/35 psi (solo/pillion)

    This being harder compound for the stock TVS tires, I'd suggest you to lower the pressure if you're into some cornering or where situations demand grip

    Cheers!

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    If you have trouble finding the right psi, just check the sidewall of the current tire, and see the maximum inflation pressure, and use accordingly.

    @B7CKTHORN, yes, there is max pressure mentioned on tyre wall & it is 40 PSI but I don't think I need to inflate tyres anywhere around 40. It is the pressure at which tyre may burst under ideal loading. The ideal pressure will be between min & max pressure.

    If I over inflate tyres still within max pressure 40 PSI then, tyre wear will be greater in the centre of the contact area, will also be compromising on ride comfort and there will be tyre noise too.

    If I under inflate tyres, then shoulder of the tread will wear out quickly compared to centre of tyre.

    I want to avoid all these by inflating the tyre to ideal pressure. If anyone use this size tyre size for JAWA, can you please provide the information. Thanks

    Of course you shouldn't inflate it to a maximum. The reason why manufacturer recommends a maximum PSI is to reduce the temperature of the tyre. As a general rule, you should apply it be some 1/4 or 1/8th of the pressure depending on riding conditions. Sometimes even what you think as a the right PSI for summer won't work out for winter situations. Just follow the above rule, see how the bike handles and fix on the same pressure. Of course when you're considering travelling with a pillion you need to add more pressure with added weight.

    40/4=10 PSI , 40/8= 5 PSI severely under inflated tyres.. anyone knows the exact pressure to be maintained for these spec of tyres ?

    I work for auto manufacturing giant and have worked with other similar oem previously.
    The fact is most of the manufacturer recommend conservative tyre pressure as max/ std pressure.
    All automotive tyres for road going vehicles are tested at least 55psi. They need to provide safe n reliable operational life atleast up till 55psi.
