8.2 - Tire Air Pressure
Properly inflated tires will provide you with the best combination of handling, tread life, and riding comfort. Underinflated tires will wear unevenly and adversely affect handling. Underinflated tires are also more likely to fail from being overheated and can cause wheel damage on rocky terrain. Overinflated tires will cause the motorcycle to ride harshly, are prone to failure from surface hazards and wear unevenly.
Make sure the valve stem caps are secure, if needed, install a new cap. Always check air pressure when your tires are cold. If you check the air pressure when the tires are warm, you will get higher readings. If you let air out of warm tires to match the recommended cold tire pressure, the tires will be under inflated. The correct cold tire pressures are listed below. If you replace the tire, follow the tire Pressure marked on the sidewall of the tire.
