Question about 2006 Honda CBF 500
According to the manual for CBF500 the front tyres pressure should be 36psi / the rear tyre 42psi. However, at this pressure the bike seems 'skittish' and at one psi less on each tyre the ride is better. I weigh @ 9kgs.
Can you advise?
42 on the rear seams awful high-i'm not familiar with the cbf but i'd be plumbing for 36/38 front/back -i ride an R1 & use 38/40 but thats usually fast riding on Pirelli diablo corsa 11

That is normal, most motorcycles run different size front and rear tyres. My BMW has a 21" in the front and a 17" in the rear. The tyre you buy should match your riding style. Don't get a race tyre if all you do is communting, the tyre will wear out too quickly. Expect to pay $150 or so for a rear tyre, perhaps a little less for the front. Mounting & balancing is normally $20-$50 per tyre. Many shops will not mount a tyre you bought somewhere else, keep that in mind if you order tyres from the internet.

check on the sidewall, should be like 42 psi max. have local tire store fill them up and ask what pressure they put. it will probably be manufacturers suggested pressure.
