ANother M50

Post  cfgioja on Wed May 11, 2011 9:11 am

Hey guys, I have a 2009 M50 and after reading through the threads I decided to to join the darkside.

I installed a 195/65/15 nexion tire yesterday and am wondering about the air pressure that needs to be put in. Do I use the tire spec or the bikes spec? The driving doesnt feel half bad, something I can get used to but it feels like the pressure is off alittle.

That tire looks good on there. Congrats

Start at 40psi and go down in 2psi increments until you find what feels right for you. 36-38 psi works for me.

That looks sic!!! Nice darkside! Congrats and welcome!



You do accept the risk of riding the darkside huh? The only downside, is about every 20 to 25 miles you have to stop your bike and get off and let you butt laugh it so much smoother than the motorcycle tire!!! Shocked lafer

I noticed today the back end feels like it tries to push the bike forward instead of following through, when powering through a fast corner, so the down result of the ct is a slower turn and not as nimble, but the ride comfort is alot better.

That is NOT the characteristic of the car tire...try a air pressure adjustment. I am faster than ever in the twisties with a car tire than a motorcycle tire! JMO
