Medium Hard Pack). Thanks!In general you tyre pressure should vary between 12 - 16psi depending on ground condition's. The softer the terrain is the less pressure you put in your tyres, for example, muddy condition's would require a tyre pressure of about 12 - 13psi, hard pack would require about 13 - 15psi and even a little harder if its rocky. You have to be careful on rocky surfaces though because the harder your tyre the more the rocks will have a marble effect on you. If you don't want to be messing around with tyre pressures all the time and want a happy medium, I would suggest running 13psi.,,,

What should be the correct tyre pressure for Hero Pleasure


The correct pressure is whatever the tire has stamped on it. Different tires use different pressures. Make sure to stick with factory pressure. Under inflating/overinflating is dangerous, could cause tire failure.

Tire pressure in manual is 21psi, front and 22psi for rear. Do I need to increase this for on road riding? Pressure seems low for on road riding?


Here's my take on tire pressures and when they need adjusted, I wrote this a while back for someone with a Honda African Twin, so this should help:


Manufacturer's recommendation – Short distance city riding below 100kph. Light off-road use ie. Small rocks, gravel. If the weather/road conditions vary a lot.


30% above recommended pressure – High speed road use. Long distances in warm weather on good quality roads. Go 40% if the conditions are the same but the bike is fully loaded with carriers.


15% below recommended pressure – Short distance riding in cold winter temps. Short distance on wet roads. Off-road, average gravel/rocks and some wet mud.


40% below recommended – Slow off-road riding in very loose dirt, sand, with lots of rocks. Tires will heat up quickly if the pace is picked up which will loose grip and cause accelerated wear.


60% below recommended – Very slow, loose dirt, deep sand (dunes). If tires slip on the rims you need to increase pressure.


My mantra is all about keeping a close eye on tire pressures and adjusting them to suit the conditions rather than keeping strictly at the manufacturer's settings. Starting out my riding career on a BMX, tire pressures can be the difference from landing a perfect jump and falling on your face. Therefore, with a motor attached, it is even more important to get it right – personally I think the 'feel and grip' is more important than the pressure number – regardless if that causes tire wear.


Hope this helps and you vote for me :)

Medium Hard Pack). Thanks!In general you tyre pressure should vary between 12 - 16psi depending on ground condition's. The softer the terrain is the less pressure you put in your tyres, for example, muddy condition's would require a tyre pressure of about 12 - 13psi, hard pack would require about 13 - 15psi and even a little harder if its rocky. You have to be careful on rocky surfaces though because the harder your tyre the more the rocks will have a marble effect on you. If you don't want to be messing around with tyre pressures all the time and want a happy medium, I would suggest running 13psi.,,,
