I've joined the darkside

Post  Tasman on Thu Jun 13, 2013 12:00 pm

I've just fitted a Goodyear 195/65-15 to my Suzuki VS1400 Intruder. I had to do it myself as no-one would fit it for me, this was in the UK. I had a bit of difficulty getting it to bead, but got there eventually. I had to go to 100psi and reposition the tyre several times so that it was pretty central. When fitted, I tried 40 psi, it was so soft and squirmy I bumped it up to 45 psi which is much better. Perhaps I did not give it a chance to get used to it at 40 psi, so I will play around with the psi a bit.
Regards,
Mark

I am on my second C/T  a General on a Goldwing and  like it I found 38lbs to be a little soft and 40 seems to work fine. You will need to play with the air to figure out what works best for that tire. Ride safe and Ride a lot.

I noticed mine changed a little over the first 1,000 miles and I had to adjust a bit from time to time.  I settled on ~40 or so.  Each gauge reads a little different from each other, so I make sure I use the same gauge each time.
