I know it's an individual preference thing but curious what you guys are running. I have now about 35 lbs. feels fine, but so did 38 llbs. Thought I would try 30 next and see. Looking for the "sweet spot".

Besides the psi, did anyone notice that the tire rides a bit bumpy, like you can feel running over a cigarette butt etc?

What is your shock preload at? It sounds like you might be too stiff.
I liked 34psi on my HydroEdge.

I'm an idiot for not thinking that Doc! I will try that today, since mine is on the highest setting of 5. Will post results. Thanks! Always count on you with a reply. Otherwise, crickets.

HE psi

Post  jcperform on Mon May 07, 2012 9:18 am

averaged 36 psi for last 45000 miles,...now at 40 psi IMHO more pressure handles better at high speed,..but under 80-90 mph
almost any psi works,...have run 25 psi two up for comfort,....but it really needs more psi to avoid weaving at high speed.

JC (BTW I got 33,000 on the last front BT 45 mounted reverse rotation)

Ran 36/38 in mine- replaced it at 35K miles because it was 5 years old. Not sure of its age when I put it on- about 3 seasons. Currently GYT TT but wish I'd stayed with a 65 series tire instead of a 60.
