Dear friends,

I saw the service manual, the front wheel 1.6BAR(23.2PSI) rear wheel 2.4BAR(34.8PSI), is this not too low?

Depends on a number of other factors, but I have 26psi in each front tyre, and 32 in the rear on mine.

Check your local laws though, in the UK, 2psi over or under recommended can earn you a penalty.

Why on earth would you think this was too low?

You might think it is low if you are used to a car or a motorcycle with a single front wheel.

This is what the manual said for my MP3 and I followed this with good results -

Front tyre pressure (rider): 1.6 bar
Front tyre pressure (rider and passenger): 1.8 bar
Rear tyre pressure (rider): 2 bar
Rear tyre pressure (rider and passenger): 2.4 bar

And those are very similar to the recommended pressures for the LX and GTS:
1.6 bar F/2.0 bar R and 1.8 bar F/2.0 bar rear respectively (with 2.6 and 2.8 bar for the rear with passenger)

So I don't see why the MP3 pressures would seem low.
