Stock tires 22 psi front, 25psi rear according to the manual. These Bridgestone tw204, tw203 have a 33psi on them, both rear and front. Any idea which is correct for these new tires?
I may not have asked the question correctly. I had the stock tires changed out for these tw204, tw203. They are more of a road tire then the stock tires for the tw200.I wouldn't go any higher than the 22 and 25. My first tire I had Yamaha mount and I thought something was wrong with the bike. It felt like I had to struggle to keep it from tipping over. The dealer had put 32 or higher, it was so long ago. When I got home I checked air pressure and deflated them. It was then rideable again . It was very unstable and dangerous with over inflated tires. My opinion.
Lol, I had the same problem, felt like a bicycle tire and out of control taking turns. I'll take your advice. Thank you... by the way, how do you like the tires?I have the same ones on mine and run the 22 and 25. Higher you are apt to run the center down while the rest still has more tread.
No difference, but you still want to adjust them depending on the rider weight and the terrain you're riding on.CYCLE GEAR mounted them and put 45psi rear, 35psi front. Is the stock tire pressure any different then these tw204? Just wondering because its more of a road tire.
I would say check the bead around the edge and make sure it is even. If it isn't the tire will bounce really bad. When mounting, I always leave the air pressure low, bounce the tire around on the ground rotating it each time. Not hard enough to hit the rim. Then I add the correct air pressure, bounce it around a few more times. I also balance my own tires before mounting.I know, that's what stock is, but this TW203 seems to have so much more bounce when only filled to 20psi. Says "max 33psi" on the sidewall so I know it's not to be filled to 33psi, but seems that it might be higher because it's a street tire.
