tire pressure

installed new front tire(excedra) and the side of the tire says max tire pressure 41 lbs. The sticker on the swing arm says 28-29 lbs. What do you guys carry in the front original equipment tires.

I run 33 psi in the front and 40 psi in the rear. This combo works well for me.

Front 38-40, rear 40 . Ive been closely watching the handling. 40 on the front sometimes feels a bit skittish.
