In the Red Haynes book it lists different tire pressures for riding pillion (to be properly Euro) as 29PSI for the US and 35PSI for Europe. While I'm appreciative for it being listed using imperial measurements, I'm wondering why there are different measurements. I'm assuming this is a difference in safety standards but I'm now curious what is better. If I go with the Euro pressure will I look more stylish?

Greetings:

In the UK, tire ... uh, Tyre pressures are rated in shillings per fathom. In France, you use centimetres carres par baguette. In the rest of Europe, its um.. I dunno. Somthing about Bars. I too am curious as to why Europeans would enjoy rolling-resistance-reducing higher pressures. Unless it's a typo?[/s]

My copy ("through 2006") doesn't have that. The Routine Maintenance chapter gives 17.6, 25.8, and 36.7 for front, rear (solo), and rear (with passenger), with slightly different values for the T5 and electric start models in the back of the book.

You have to be careful with tire pressure. I've always found that if I have too many Bars per tire, I wind up needing to take a taxi home.
