Question about 2006 Honda CBF 500

1 Answer

Tyre pressures seem incorrect

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?

SOURCE: diferent size tyres front and back is this normal?

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.

Tyre Pressure for Majestic 19.6 ft Caravan


Depends also on the kind of tyre.
For the maximum load of tyre nex kinds need next pressure , wich is called AT-pressure/maxloadpressure/reference-pressure , for up to maximum speed of tyre or if lower 160km/99m/h. This is not the maximum pressure of tyre.

Normal car tyre /standardload AT 2.5bar/36psi ( exeptions as low as 2.2)
XL/Reinforced/Extraload AT 2.9bar/42psi ( exeptions 2.8 and 3.0)
6PR( plyrating) /C-load AT 3.8bar/55psi EUR ( USA 50psi/3.4bar)
8PR/D-load AT 4.5/4.8 bar/ 65/69/70 psi
From E -load is not often used in Europe.

From this AT pressure you can calculate the needed pressure for lower loads . Made spreadsheet for it in wich I first add 10% to the assumed load before calculating.
Will give example picture

2000 Hornet 250: what is the ideal tyre pressure in hornet 250...


NEVER the same pressure on both tyres !!
Usually, rear tyre is larger and/or carries more weight (you), therefore needs a much higher PSI. On a Hornet 250, 600 or 900cc it should be 36psi FRONT and 42psi REAR. - check the manuals.

I want to know the tyre pressure front and rear daytona 1200


Yup nice question. For any vehicle accurate tyre pressure will give you better tyre life, low running cost, etc. Here is a chart for car tyres click here.
For bikes i havent found any chart. basically in india rear tyres having 100/90 18inch maximum tyre pressure is 32psi. front tyre having 2.75P or 80/90 18 inch uses 24 psi pressure. and do check your tyre pressure twice a month.

Steering problem GSXR600 SRAD


A couple of things... are the tyres matched? You said you have changed the rear and the front is worn - this will definitely have an effect on handling, as will tyre pressures. The correct sizes for your tyres are: Front 120/70 ZR-17, Rear 180/55 ZR-17
You should ALWAYS use matched tyres - even differences between models in the same brand will be different and you shouldn't mix and match unless you are an expert - and I mean a real expert - pro racer or similar.
Tyre pressures for your bike are : 36psi front and rear. Unless your tyre manufacturer says different, use that figure. Unless all those things are right, you can't begin to diagnose handling issues.
Good luck!

Tyres and pressures


The Cali' Special tyre pressures:- --------------- 1 RIDER.---------------------- 2 RIDERS Front ...... 2.3 Bar(33.5psi) ................... 2.3Bar(33.5psi) Rear ....... 2.5Bar(36.3psi) .................... 2.9Bar(42psi) I use BT45's on mine but I have the ordinary tubed rims. I find the ride harsh but this may be down to suspension rather than tyres. People recommend running the BT45 at a slightly higher pressure than the book. I got 8500 miles from the front and 4700 from the rear. Although the rear was changed slightly early due to a puncture. I will probably try a different make next time.
