tyre pressure for gravel rd
on: October 17, 2013, 07:51:40 AM
went for a ride today on dirt/gravel rds are running metzeler next tyres last time ran road pressures of 42psi rear and 36psi front found bike useless on dirt roads. I know that this tyre is mostly a road tyre but today i dropped tyre pressure too 38 rear and 34 front. Dropping too that pressure completely transformed ct felt alot more confident on loose gravel roads and suspension felt 100% better too.

Try 28 and 30 on dirt roads, you will be surprised  :007:
Not if youre running PR3's though, only if youre running dual sport like Anakee etc
