Default tyre pressure

no owners manual,so i got to order,looking for the correct tyre pressure,bike came with Maxxis tyres which i hear are bottom of the range (correct me ).

max psi on side wall is 42 psi but reckon should stick to manufacturers guidelines,what ever they are ?

can anyone help with the 250/290 explaination.

42 psi is good. You can run a little lower if you want, depending on what kind of riding your doing.

The 250/290 is the pressure using kPa scale.

The 250 and 290 will reflect back to front and rear tyre as well and again indicating that the same pressures will be used irrespective of one rider or one rider and pillion

Furthermore the 250 reverts to 36 psi in the front and the 290 reverts to 42 in the rear tyre going on their recommendations

Not knowing where you are but just remember beer these are a guide by the manufacturer
You can also take into consideration the temperature that your riding in and the distances.
If its stinking hot and your ducking to the shop 2 minutes away is very different to hot roads and riding ten hours so adjust accordingly

Default Hot Climate

Hi all
I just bought a CBR600F 2013 Model..
I live in Turkey and the weather here is hot.
so should I stick according to the manual tire pressure or what would be the best.
I will try 34 -38 or maybe 34 - 40...
What is your recommendations?
