You don't say what kind of bike it is. If it's a push bike the maximum air pressure should be written on the side of the tyres. For road racing bikes it's normally up to 100 psi.

Tyre pressure for 215/65 r16 tyres on a 2014 lwb ford transit custom

Hi I'm Peter, all tires actually have the max air pressure listed on the side of the tire and it varies as to what the tire is used for. Car makers list the tire pressure they prefer you to use in the vehicle manual. They usually have a lower setting than the max pressure posted on the tire. This is so the vehicle will have a softer ride. As a mechanic I always use the max pressure for better gas mileage.

Engine boggs out when stopming on accelerator for passing gear.

Please provide year, make, model, engine size, any repairs, and tests performed. If your just looking for quick ideas I will suggest looking for vacuum leaks, is the engine light on (what are the codes, if any)? Inspect the MAP and MAF sensor, fuel line pressure, timing, clogged fuel and/or air filter, Slow response from TAC unit or Idle air control valve (depending on the year), did the vehicle sit for an extended period of time (old or bad gas could affect performance), and exhaust back pressure. I hope that helps.

Rear suspension rides really hard 24 lb air in shocks

Then lessen the amount of air. You can run 2 lbs or 50 lbs. in that year. You just have to find the happy spot for you. Some guys like it softer than others.

I added air shocks to my 1995 lincoln town car because the air suspension bags died. what pressure should they take and do they lose air so you have to add air?

The Stock Air Bags self Leveled, your new System should have come with PAperwork or is there a Air Nozzle that you have to fill? The Bags should come with a Pressure Window for a Firmer Ride or Softer Ride.

What is the correct front and rear tire pressures for a 1999 Z24 Cavalier convertible. Our driver side door was replaced and the sticker is missing.

I think there is another other sticker in the back cover of the spire tire cover in the trunk, but you can go by the the tire pressure label on the tire it self and run the rear tire pressure 4 pounds less then the front. The front always have more since that is where the engine is and the rear has no weight so a softer tire will keep the rear end from hopping around bumpy corners. I believe the proper tire pressure on the Z24 if it's the correct tire is 42 lbs cold front and 38 lbs cold rear if you like the performance feel and if you like the softer feel, then drop it by 6 lbs both front and rear. Good luck and hope this helps.

Benjamin Air Rifle Model 342 not building pump pressure

Springs tend to loose their performance after a few years is air rifles. Check also the seal/o rings on the piston rod and the blow hole. I found waxing it with Vaseline makes it last longer and seals more.
