Hi ya'all. New Darksider here, (but I couldn't post on the into thread for some reason). Anyway, I recently mounted the above tire on my Valkyrie Interstate, and have it inflated to 32 PSI. Is this enough air pressure? It seems pretty spongy to me. Thanks.

Marty,

On the heavier bikes that really have the G's because of their mass, i would go up some. Try 5 psi at a time until you get the feel you want then try 5 more until it matches your riding style. Here's something else you can do. Because the motorcycle tire is soooo hard and stiff, people run softer shocks. So you can play with the the shock settings as well to make it not so squishy feeling. Let us know what you find out???

I run 40psi in my rear tire. I've tried 3 brands and 40psi seems to run well for me.

Decent day here, so went out experimenting. First took it up to 44 PSI, but it felt wierd, squirrly is the best description. So, backed it off to 40 PSI, and felt much better. In fact, couldn't keep my right foot, er right wrist out of it! Very stable at 100 MPH, which was as fast as I wanted to go on my local 2-lane roads.

I'll post a pic soon.
