Tyre Pressure Monitoring System .. high pressures wtf ?

Post  Cheazdad on Tue 13 Mar 2018, 12:18 am

I've recently installed a TPMS system on my GSX 1250 FA, one thing I've noticed is that with the tyres set to 36/42, after a long ride my tyre pressures rose to 43/49 with tyre temps at 33C F and 39c R.  My Questions is, should I be reducing my tyre pressure while riding to 26/42 or jsut accept that their going to run higher ?  Tyres btw are Michelin road 5's.

thanks

No.


Tyre pressures should be set cold, they will go up with temperature increases, and come back down as it returns to ambient temp
