Good for you. That's got to be a sweet bike. I'm not going to be much help, for I am Fortinbras, Lord of mechanical idiots. However, I find this subject fascinating. I bought a 1500 two years ago. My first street bike. I wanted to learn basic maintenance including checking tire pressure, you know, in case any girls were watching. I had a pair of Dunlop E3's installed and of course didn't trust the installer to have the right pressure in them. So I consulted my owners manual and it told me to run 33 front and 36 rear (under light loads). So that's what I did, and I was religious about it. Fast forword, 23k miles later: While in Salt Lake at the World Superbike races, I met a guy who told me I could put air in my front forks! Man was I excited to hear this. I put six pounds in each. I don't know if it was a placebo effect or what but I was instantly more confident in the corners. Anyhow, on the way back across Nevada, I stopped for fuel in Winnemucka. While riding through town I noticed the front end hopping, and thought; man they've got to fix these roads. But a second thought discovered it was only hopping at about 30mph. My third thought was, puting air in the forks screwed everything up. So I took the air out. My fourth thought was, look at the front tire. It was kind of dark, but I did see some weird things going on. I felt the tire and there were alternating flat spots along the surface. Why they seemed to develope so suddenly I don't know. I made it back just fine and started researching tire pressures. Turned out that 33 is way too low. I read that many riders were running as much as 40psi in front. On the tire it says do not exceed 41. Apparently Dunlop recomends 36/40. I just had the tire replaced and the mechanic says 38/38. I am baffled as to why there doesn't seem to be any science behind this. So many opinions. I guess it's not all that important as long as I'm within reasonable perameters. I'm going to try 38/40 and looking forword to better mileage and a slightly bumpier ride.
Good luck with your new bike and have fun playing with air pressures.
