  • Air pressure in 21" front tire?

    Finally have my 1600 on the road since this past weekend. I have the rear tire aired up to 36 psi. Was unsure about the front. I have a 21" wheel up there with a Cobra Chrome tire. I put her up to 36 as well. She does ride nice. Just wondering if anyone has any input as to what they run it at?

    At my weight of 180 lb, I run 39 to 40 in the rear. 36 seems pretty low for the rear even if you're a 98 lb weakling! DK on the front. What does it say on the side of the tire? That's merely the maximum, but the recommended pressure would be based on the bike and Rider weight.

      Gotcha. Yeah now that I think about it I set them at 38 psi not 36. I only weigh in at about 150-155lbs. But will be riding with the girl on the back.

        I've been running 40psi on the front and rear on all of my bikes. 16", 19", and 21" tires. My weight is 165#.

          I've been running 40 psi in mine for years.

            I run 45 PSI front and rear.
            I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

                Yeah I’m up here. Working out the kinks. Had my regulator take a crap on me. Swapped that out. Now the bike died on me twice on nova road and International speedway. I stopped jiggled the fuel line and waited a bit and she fired up. Same thing 5 minutes later. After that I stopped to fill up. Took 2.5 gallons and only went 50 miles. She needs some tweaking.

                  Are you still running the OE fuel pump ?

                  No fuel pump. Pretty sure I have it narrowed down to the enrichener, and the needle clip position.
