VN 900 Custom Tyre Pressures
I got back on the bike last week after about 4 months off, the ride seemed a tad loose so I checked the tire pressures and they required a top up.
In looking into what the pressures should be set at, I came across many differing views, with some saying to crank them up to 40 psi.
The VN900C owner manual says:
F = 40psi, R = 28psi up to 97.5kg or R = 32 psi up to 180kg
What are your thoughts? I ended up sticking the rear up to about 40 psi (I don't way 180kg however lol, maybe about 90 or so.)
The ride does seem much improved but I want to make sure I am not putting myself at risk with over inflated tires?
