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.

05 Cadillac deville front tires tell me how much air in tires but rear tires don't say how much air is in tires can the tmps affect this


Inside of each tire attached to the valve stem is the sensor that transmits the air pressure to the indicator panel. It is possible that the sensors have gone bad on the rear of the car or that for some reason they were removed when new tires were mounted on the car. The only way to check that out is to have the tires dismounted and check the transmitter on each of the rear tires.

Yamaha v-star 1100 pulls to the left


Hi, Joe and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.

I just noticed my back tire is rubbing a little on my rear tire...what can i do to fix that?


Okay..not sure where its rubbing...if its rubbing on the driveshaft tube, .first verify the correct size tire is mounted on the rim...
a 1982 XJ650 should have a 120/90-18 tire...the 120 is the width in mm if its a 130 or a 140 it may be too wide for the chassis design. If it is the correct size, inflated to correct pressure something else is wrong.
