Front and rear tyre pressure for Suzuki vl250 intruder

Have a look in your user manual, or look under the seat for a sticker that has that info on it. Bike tyre pressures tend to run a bit higher than cars. On my VZR1800 it's 36-42 PSI, yours probably won't be that different

Front suspension

Either or a combination of both. Suspension set up, tyre pressure, wrong tyre size or type, style of riding???
Check your manual for suspension set up details and tyre pressures. Check out your steering head is tightened correctly. There are no leaks from your fork seals and if all is in order try ridind it differently (and safely) on bends.
If you have just got this bike recently, it could just be that this particular bike doesn't suit your style of riding. I have ridden bikes that don't "feel right" to me but other people have no problem with. Maybe let a friend test ride and see what they say.

tyres get hot from working on a hot road surface so if properly inflated the tyre temperature will be around 10 degrees hotter than the road surface . To get noticeable hotter means they are under inflated and the side walls are flexing excessively or they are overloaded which causes the side walls to flex excessively as well. If you are concerned and the tyre pressure is correct for the weight and speed you are travelling there are places that will inflate your tyres with nitrogen which reduces the tyre temperature considerably and extend tyre life.. Many heavy haulage trucks run nitrogen filled tyres and extend tyre life by up to 20%

Replace the tyre. The only thing that keeps you on the road while riding a bike is the tyres. If you have any suspicions either replace it or take it to a tyre repair shop and see if they will fix it. I would re-inflate the tyre first and leave the bike over night to see if the tyre is sound or not. It may just be a failed valve.

OK this ought to help you, I pulled it from this site:

  • Air pressure: When riding in sand or mud, lower the air pressure to around 10psi in the rear and 11-12psi in the front. This allows more surface area on the tires to contact and grip with the sand. For harder conditions on motocross tracks and trail riding over stones, branches e.t.c, inflate them up to around 13psi, 14psi max. If the air pressure is too low over hard terrain, you run the risk of causing a puncture or damaging the RIMS. Don't tighten the nut (on the air piece) to the rim. It's not meant to be tightened. Back it off to meet the valve cap once you've got the air pressure right.

    I am 36yrs old, an weigh 11 an half stonne, i have a yamaha R125 an i want to know what tyre pressure should be in the front tyre of my bike. Hope you can answer my question, thanks. Ackie.

    Tire preasure is set by the manufacturer. It is the sidewall of the tire. Always inflate to their specs for best handling and tire ware.

    Does the front shocks on a 1982 1100 GS take air pressure. If so how much. The exhaust pipes are hitting my front fender now when I stop hard or go over bumps.

    if there are air valves, those early bike sometimes needed air, about 5psi, do not use a compresor, use a small hand pump, or proper low pressure inflator. A standard tyre inflater will blow the seals.
    The guard should not hit no matter what the pressure, check the exhaust is the correct one for the bike,check for a bent frame or forks

    What tyre pressure would you recommend for a 140/70/18 rear tyre

    it is best to go with the mfsti, the psi listed on the tire itself but there are some things you can do to adjust this. less ait about 5 10 pounds will give you a softer tire and better handleing. the trade off on this will be faster wear of the tire. over inflating it will give much better feul mileage sharper (not better but you will feel the effect of faster handleing going into and coming out of leans.) the trade off is going to be faster tread wear in the center of the tire. you are going to want to make sure the front and back are the same. i did a under inflate in the front and an over inflate on the rear and it gave me the feel that i liked in the bike. play around with it and have fun.

    Zzr1100 when riding at very low speed steering is twitchy.

    you need to check your tyre and it may also require balancing as it is a big bike.The bearing do not normally cause this but it is a good and safe thing to check it.

    Tyre pressures

    Look around the tire and you should find the max inflation pressure for the tire. The pressure info will be smaller than the tire size info but it will be there somewhere.

    Okay, that is the max pressure. It is probably 45psi. Try 45 psi and if you want a bit softer ride go to 40 then 35 then 30 until you find the inflation pressure that gives you the desired ride without being squirrely. I think 35psi is where you will settle.

    Please rate this answer. Thanks!
