How important is maintaining the correct tyre pressure?
Very! Tyre pressure is one of the most important maintenance tasks you should perform before every ride. Although the carcass and overall structure of the tyre has a significant effect on the overall performance of the tyre, for it to function properly you must have sufficient air pressure in the tyre.
We recommend that you check your air pressure before every ride, especially when carrying a load. Every 4 psi of air lost in the tyre translates to approximately 25 to 30 kilogram reduction in load carrying capacity. For example, if your tyre pressure is 34 psi, instead of a recommended 41 psi, you would need to take 55 to 65 kilograms of load off of the motorcycle. Never exceed the maximum load capacity that is stamped on the sidewall of the tyre at the recommended air pressure.
Another reason proper air pressure is so important is to ensure proper handling of the motorcycle. Never over-inflate a tyre, as over-inflation of a tyre may reduce the contact patch. Likewise, under-inflation generates uneven contact pressure and support. Both conditions negatively affect the handling and stability of the motorcycle.
When choosing replacement tyres, what is the best method of selecting the right size and type of tyres for my motorcycle?
We recommend that you first consult the owner’s manual for your motorcycle to find the original size of the front and rear tyres. Once you know the sizes, it is imperative that you only purchase tyres of the same size recommended in the owner’s manual.
What type of sidewall protectants or cleaners can I use on my tyres?
We recommend that you only use a mild soap solution to clean your sidewalls and whitewalls. Then rinse with plain water.
