Hello I have a ET4 and would like to know the proper tire pressure.
Today at the inspection was set to 41/26PSI and I always have done 26/19PSI
I just want to be sure I am safe with the tires at 41PSI.
Thank You

Apparently (just the driver) 19psi in the front, 26psi in the rear.

Proper ET4 tire pressure?

Never trust the dealerships or inspectors to set the pressures correctly, especially when new tires are installed. *Always* double check.

I just got new tires put on my GTS 300 in preparation for AmeriVespa and was amazed at how squirrely it felt on the ride home. I let the tires cool overnight and tested the pressures. Nearly 40 psi on both! The recommended pressures for mine are 26 front, and 29 rear, give or take a few for personal preference, riding conditions, and the load you're asking it to carry. When I asked the mechanic about it he said he always fills the tires to two psi less than max to "make the tire last longer." Ummm... Wrong!
