Recomended Tire Pressure on 2004 VROD

Hi guys, I recently purchased a 2004 Vrod without the Manufacturer's instruction manual. Could any one tell me the recommended tire pressures for
Front: Dunlop 120/70 ZR19
Rear: Dunlop 180/55 ZR18

as described in the Manufacturer's instruction manual. Thanks a lot and best regards from sunny lake Geneva area in Switzerland.

I run with 40 in front and back. I think some people go with 40 in front and 42 in back.

I think the "book" recomends 40 in the front and 38 in the rear.

the manufacture tag on mine says 36 psi cold frt and 38 psi cold rear but of course that was for the dunflops it HAD.
sounds like a good place to start....higher pressure equates to longer tire life

36 lbs in the front Dunlop will cause uneven (Scalloping) wear and very poor mileage. I kept 39 lbs and tires last about 13K miles and no scalloping.

That's not entirely true. It can reduce the Patch on the Pavement and thus cause a faster wear in the center and most important part of the tread.

I find 42 psi in front and back and get 18,000 miles on each tire.

I know I read some where that if you ride two up that you should max the psi on the rear tire, whatever the rears tire says the max psi is.

The recommended pressures are 36/38 psi (248/262 kPa) for solo riders; 36/40 psi (248/276 kPa) for rider and a passenger.

When someone asks a question, why not try a) not just guessing; b) actually give them the correct information they asked for and c) not look at it as an opportunity to spout dangerous nonsense.

Ok please forgive me if this is a dumb question

Since I plan on tripping with the Rod I am looking at tire repair kits. I hear that the Co2 kits are difficult to use. Would a bicycle tire pump be able to give you enough pressure to make it out of the "rough" (into a town)???

A good bike pump should work, no problem.

Palmer stabilizer regulator with tire adapter or akalmp reg. & a 9oz co2 tank works great.
