Tyre pressures for a VTR250?

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by powinc, Aug 24, 2008.

  1. I checked the tyres on my 99 VTR250 for the 1st time today and found both tyres were at 100kpa, is this low??

    I recall seeing somewhere that my tyre pressures should be 200 to 225kpa.
  2. That (100 kPa or 15 psi) is pretty low and is probably drinking petrol. It should be around 220kPa.

  3. Yes, that's very low. The dealer advised 29Front, 32Rear. In kpa that is 200Front, 220Rear.
  4. Thanx guys. I pumped them up this morning
