    Default PSI recommendation for new tyres

    Hi,

    I've upsized front from 100/80 to 110/70
    And Rear from 130/70 to 140/70
    For the stock PSI was 25 single and 28 with pillion for front
    And Rear was 28 single and 32 with pillion
    Now how much air should I fill

    I have a Pulsar AS200.
    Rear tyre is MRF Masseter 140/70
    Front tyre is MRF REVZ FC1 110/70.

    TIA.

    Question Re: The Tyre Pressure Thread!

    Hi Guys,

    I have a question regarding Tyre pressure.
    I have an Apache RTR 180. The front tyre is the stock one, 6 years old. Rear tyre is a new one, about an year old.

    I inflated my tyres two days back at a Petrol pump. He inflated the front to 35PSI and the rear to 40PSI which I thought was normal since that is how much it is inflated at most petrol pumps. Later noticed the normal tyre pressures online :P.

    Yesterday, my front tyre went flat in the morning, but my back tyre was normal.
    This happened to me before too.

    When I again inflated the front tyre to a lesser pressure, the tyre stayed normal and did not deflate.

    Does this indicate a problem with the front tyre (since it is 6 years old)? Or just due to over inflation? Should I be replacing the front tyre?

    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    That's the reason why tires deflate during running and cause accidents. Most trust the pump wala filler too confidently. It's a six year old tire, it's due for replacement, irrespective of its condition, especially after the deflation you've experienced.

    Front tire is very crucial for grip and handling. I'd suggest replacing your front tire.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    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.


    THE END

    Model : Suzuki Gixxer SF 155cc (2017)
    Tyre size F: 100/80-17
    Tyre size R: 140/60-17
    Tyre Pressure F: 29PSI
    Tyre pressure R: 33 PSI
    Same for both solo and pillion.

    Also can a mod turn this into a sticky? Would be really useful, I feel.
