Hi, just sticking on a new set of Pilot Road 4s (trail front, std rear). Those of you who have them on their bikes already- what tire pressures are you running! Im a 300lb rider so Im heavier than most...:yikes:
like you, I weigh in at over 300 once I am geared up, I figure I am running my rear tire at close to its maximum weight rating, and running over when I go for a 2 up ride, I run 41+ rear, and 39-40 front
anything less, and I get scalloping on my front tire and both see significant left side bias and IMHO, premature wear
at that weight, the tires get plenty hot, even with high pressure
I'm about 185-190, w/ a topcase, and other listed farkles (maybe 15lbs additional?).
I run the PR4s (also Road rear, Trail front) at 34 front, 37 rear. (Ran previous PRs at that pressure as well, with no issues).
