I have a 2006 with 16,000 miles and replaced the originals with the same ...Dunlop 250's.Figure that was good mileage out of them,will try them again.
I had been running 36 in the font and 41 in the back according to the inside trunk lid information.Was told to run 40 in the front and 42 in the back.What say you?...Thanks

I ran 36 in the front and saw tire cupping at less than 3000 miles. I now run 40.

At the Honda Hoot this year in Knoxville the Dunlop rep said run 2 lbs
LESS than maxium printed on the sidewall of the tire... more than that
reduces the footprint on the road and could be unsafe...

I split the difference and run 39 in the front and 40 in the rear. I have 7,700 miles on the original D-250s. I think I'll be good until Wing Ding 29.

I notice the front tire always seems to need more air whereas the rear holds the pressure better. Is that common?

Just put a new set of D250's on and had 17,000 miles on the original set. I run 41 lbs front, 44 lbs rear and had minimal cupping on the first set. I also changed fork oil to 7w and put a spacer in the antidive for a softer ride.
