Tire Pressure for Avons

Post by tbeiler » Thu Jun 23, 2016 8:14 pm

For anyone running the Avon tires on your Goldwing, I found a pdf that shows tire type, tire sizes and tire pressures and the bike they are fitted to.
After reviewing doc I changed my 86 Aspy to 36 front and 40 rear. Was around 32 front and rear, this pressure was from the dealer when I got new tires installed. Well, I couln't believe the difference it made, bike handles way better, turns easily, a huge improvement overall.

There is just about every motorbike manufacturer listed.
I'm sure there is an equivalent document for other brands of tires as well.

A low tire is not only dangerous, but can lead to cupping, premature wear, etc. IMO a rider should check their bike's tire pressure before every ride and every month or so check the face of the tires and sidewalls for foreign objects and integrity. FWIW 8-)
