Hi guys, I'm a lurker on here...lol. Not n a pervy kinda way. :wrong:

I've wanted a wing for years and finally one found me. 2003 blue limited ABS w/11,000 miles. Seems to have all the bells and whistles. Only thing missing is me and a CT. After reading and thinking, I decided to give it a go and bought a Yokohama 190/60/16. It's not RF (i know,:flg: dont start on me about it. It was my choice) but I did get tpms for it and a 709 for the front. When the time comes to change it over what would be a good starting point on pressures? I seem to remember reading or seeing someone used one at 38 psi but I can't find it again. I live CO so mountains and curves and rain are my play ground. I also road race bikes so dragging a knee isn't new to me. But getting the right pressure (at least to start) is important for me and my passengers safety. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

And I fully intend to get a DS number and cookie recipe. :thumbup:

38 psi at 65 to 70 degrees cold temperature will be a good pressure to start with for the non run flat yoko.

32 PSI on flat land and 36 PSI when the road begins to turn often... would be a good place to start!

Usually 42-44 psi is a good starting point for a NRF. Depending on how stiff or soft the sidewalls are you will need to adjust the pressure accordingly. Rail32 and JV have used the NRF Yoko, maybe they will chime in with their experiences.

Thanks guys, rail32 are you riding solo or 2up? My second is only 100 pounds so I'm doubting that'd would affect the pressure much, less than 2psi is she's on....?? Just got back from a quick Oklahoma visit, 1600 miles and I have to say I'm very happy with the wing. Especially in strong cross winds!

Thanks again guys!
