2018 Dragster RC tire pressure

Bike was delivered to me with 40psi both ends.
Anyone know what recommended pressures are?

My users manual says 33psi, some articles say 41rear, but didn’t mention front.

I set 34f 36r, and only fo 50 miles on. Ride was firm.

Advise?

Similar experience bike delivered with 44 front 40 rear, not impressed by the PDI

Stamped on the forks are recommended readings of 38/39

Running mine at 33/35, firm so I am arranging for a suspension set up after the first service which is being carried out this week

Go with the MV recommended pressures on the sticker on the forks, or in the manual.

You can always adjust pressures later depending on preference and wear.

Otherwise, contact the tire manufacturer and ask them specifically for your bike.

I run 34f 36r, I never know when I decide to take some corners. If I am specifically going out for a ride through the twisties, I drop 1 psi on both

If you are riding on the street at speeds that require dropping tire pressures, you are doing it wrong.

you can go a bit lower... cause the pressure on the sticker is mostly pressure for highway and load. When you ride solo and in the twisties you should lower it a bit (0,2 bar)


i leave it 33 front and lower it to 33 rear... (cold)

I have to say that a recommended 41 in the rear seems awfully high for a bike as light as this with a solo rider. Unless it has something specific to do with the 200 section tire.

After 3,000km I find that 34psi front and 33psi rear works well for street use.
At the track I have 30psi front and 28psi rear.
