    Hi Seventhson,

    Most bikes now come with a recommendation of 36F & 42R.
    I think that is because the manufacturers don't trust us to adjust them according to the load (solo or 2 up or 2 up with luggage) So they quote the hardest pressure for everything!

    I assume you have a Speedmaster? If so, I've found 35F & 39R work for me. I'm 16st & only ever ride solo with no luggage.

    Hi all,
    My 2008 America has recommended tyre pressure's front 31 psi and rear 36 psi, I run 32 front and 38/39 psi rear, I Tow and ride two up regularly, I like the higher pressures for solo too !

    Cheers capt.

    I've been using the Triumph recommended pressures of 36 front and 42 rear but am not entirely happy with the rear tyre. I was advised to try a lower pressure by one of the Triumph employees.
