Hello folks, I just joined the darkside this week and love it. I have an 01 that I mounted a Michelin alpin PA3 ZP 195/55-16. I put 32 psi in and like the ride, but would like to get even wear out of it. I ride 2 up 90% of the time, with a combined weight of around 400 pounds. I'm not a peg scrapper, but I like to roll the throttle from time to time. I would like to hear from people who are running a similar set up. What psi gave you an even wear? I also have the bike traxxioned if that makes a difference. Thanks for the info.

32 may be a good starting point, based on your description of your riding norms. Keep good track of the tread wear and adjust accordingly, as the tire will show you what to do.

welcome to the Darkside first off.
My guess for you is 30 psi living and riding where you do .
So when are you going to meet me for your share of Darkside cookies ?
Again welcome and enjoy the safer smoother ride .:thumbup:
