The topic of tyre pressures seems to create a constant source of discussion (and often confusion) amongst motorcycle riders. This appears to be true across the entire range of riders, from racetrack to sport, to touring, commuting, dual sport and more. Whether or not the rider is interested in maximum traction or maximum tyre life, or somewhere in between
Some of these questions might be…What tyre pressure should I run?...Will the sort of riding I do change what pressure I should run?...How often should I check my tyre pressures?...Why do tyre pressures vary, even if I haven’t ridden my bike?
As part of a series of informative videos, Steve Brouggy of the California Superbike School takes us through why tyre pressures are important, what they should be, and how often they should be checked. These videos are designed to help riders answer common questions they may have in relation to their tyres and how it can affect their riding.
