Tire Pressure 7 Years, 5 Months ago  
Just wondering what pressures I should run in the Metzeler tires. I ride mostly 2 up. And if its a overnight stay the little woman has to have her girlie stuff, that means I have no room for mine... I weigh 245 she is about 130. I have 38 lbs in both right now. Which I think is ok, but want to know your imput. You guys have more experience with these tires.

Re:Tire Pressure 7 Years, 5 Months ago  
There was a similar question on the RSR forum a while back and a lot of those guys were runing 42 rear and 40 front. I've been doing the same since. (I'm 300lbs on my own). Having seen some of the replies here maybe I'm a little over the top ?

Does that mean I can run less because I am 170lbs?

No Curt, it means you need to eat more! BB

A strict diet of steak pies and guiness to wash them down should do the trick. Did it for me !
