Re: correct tyre pressure
Depending on the type of riding you are doing, you will want to run 28 - 30 in the front and 30 - 32 in the rear. The rear builds more heat and will stabilize at 36 when hot, the front takes longer because of less weight on the tire so it will need to be initially lower but it too will build to 36 hot.

The factory tires said 33 psi. So put 33 psi in all four tires. But if you changed the tires with different tires I would put the psi it says on the tire andthe new tire gives you a different psi than the factory tires I would follow what the tire says check the tire and fill it all up with the same pressure but do t go over the maximum psi you need to be 5 psi below the max.
Hi, a 1999-2003 suzuki burgman /an 400 using standard tyre sizes 110/90-13 front is 1'75 bar (25psi) 130/70-13 rear is. 2 bar-(29psi) and 2.8 bar (41psi when carrying a passenger) check the tyre for correct seating on the rim, dont think you have done any harm, the only danger inflating small tyres to a high pressure is you risk blowing it off the rim, as you have now corrected it you should be ok with that, paul
Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 35 psi will do the trick. Please rate my answer.
As always, correct pressure depends on the tyre fitted but if it is running with the standard tyres that it had fitted from new then:
Single rider: Front is 1.75 bar (25 PSI) Rear 2.0 (29 PSI)
Fully loaded (Panniers and or pillion passenger) Front 2.0 bar (29 PSI) Rear 2.25 bar (32 PSI)
These settings from the book for a 2006 model, though I imagine that they apply to all with very little if any variation
220kpa (kilopascal) = 32 psi
30 bar = 435 psi Cool that would be worth watching from a distance.
but I suspect it should be 30 kpa which is the same as 0.30 bar which would be 4 psi
also worth checking the tyre manufacturers the handbook pressures are for OEM tyres, other tyres may have a slightly different recommendation,,,
