    Street air pressures Shinko 244?

    Who has so advice on street air pressures on the Golden Boy? What about the Stock Rear?

    I'd say that Yamaha's recommended pressures are about what I would suggest for the Golden Boy and stock rear tire, somewhere between 18 and 20 psi.

    We run the recommended 18psi in our 4.60-18 244 Goldenboy on the front - works well enough for asphalt-to-gravel-to-asphalt roads we generally ride.

    I'm thinking we my replace the front Goldenboy with the similar IRC GP-1 at the next tire change.

    The Golden Boy is so stiff that little deviations in air pressure are unnoticeable to me. 18 seems good, but your weight, gear and temperature may require adjustments.

    I have a Heidenau K60 on the front of my TW. I tried 18 psi and the knobs were wearing down at an angle. I up it to 30 psi and try to use the back brake a little more and the knobs are now wearing down flat, or close to it. 98% of my riding is asphalt.
