Tyre pressure

Recommended Posts

I agree Kesawi. 40psi is the minimum pressure I run to get decent tyre life. In particular front left cops a hiding from roundabouts. So keep tyre pressures up!

Yep, recommended tyre pressures are for a comfort ride. I've been keeping mine at 40psi for the last year and have noticed significant increases in tyre life and fuel economy, and no noticeable difference in ride comfort - then again, I drive around Sydney which has the worst roads in the Commonwealth!

Not sure if it is that relevant but all the replies have been from owners with the larger wheels and the low profile tyres(KX-S & Grande). Not sure if the OP has the KX-R 2013 which has the 17" rims and the higher profile tyres?
I have the 17" rims and used the 40 psi pressure for the past couple of years but lately I dropped it to 36 and I notice that it grips better when cornering and has slightly less slip in the wet. Definitely a better ride and steering at 36. I might go halfway and try them at 38psi for a while.

My dealer did recommend 40 psi but when they did the 10k/k service some dumbass there put 60psi in them...  not impressed.
