New tire is on and like it

Post  johnnie1 on Thu Mar 29, 2012 8:45 pm

Had the General G Max AS 03 Put on today picked up the Wing and took the long way home putting about 75 miles on it will need some more miles to tell for sure but as of now I am really impressed the ride is smoother and the noise is a lot less. Put it thru some curves and it felt great. I do have a question for those of you that have been running a C/T seems like at low speed just after making a turn it gives me a feeling of for lack of a better word like its centering its self anyone else had this. Also at 1st it smelled like hot rubber I have checked tire and bike and can find no place where it looks like it is rubbing, could this just be the new tire? have less of it now than at 1st. Tire size is a 195/55/16. From what little riding I have done I think I'm going to be glad I made the change.

Congrats
What pressure are you using? From what I've heard on the General, it likes about 40psi.
A 195/55/16 shouldn't rub, prolly just that new tire smell... lol!

Asked the fellow who put it on to put 41 lbs in it checked it when I got home of course it was warm and it read 42 so thinking it may be a little low, going to check it cold this morning and then start at 42 and see how it feels, feels pretty good right now, much better than I had even hoped for. My next tire will be what you are running I think. Thanks for the reply ride safe.
