I just had a G709 and G704 installed and about to go on a week's tour 2 up and fully loaded. The shop recommended 41 pounds of air in the front tire and 43 in the rear. I've read where some are running the front down to 32 pounds with no problems. What are you Bridgestone tire users recommending for pressures? Thanks in advance.

41 to 42 in front stone... I get 19k out of that tire with zero cupping or other issues. Then again I run traxxion suspension and all balls and fork brace

Bridgestone actually recommends 38 in the front and 41 in the rear. I find the tire does NOT cup at those pressures and handles maximum best.

36 psi in the front and 41psi in the rear. I tried 41 psi in the front and the ride was harsh...36psi in the front gives a smoother ride.

Bridgestone tire pressure

Normally run 38 front and 41 rear cold. Got 19 thousand to rear and 21 thousand rear, no cupping, front balanced and dyna beads, rear dyna beads only. Perfect wear, with moderate cornering.

regardless of tire brand,,

,,whatever the posted maximum pressure is listed on sidewall of tire,with the tires cold put in 3 lbs LESS than max posted. best practice ,check with digital air pressure gauge also.

take care,

Some of you need to look at your tires. Max pressure on sidewall is 41lbs.

I use 39/41.

Thank You much. If you want it, it's For Sale. My partner and I are looking to downsize. We don't use this one anymore for what it's capable of doing. We've had it for 23 years.
By the way, this one's 260hp. About 158kts.
