Just darksided my 2008 400 which has a towpac on it. Any idea of what tire pressure I should use?
http://burgmanusa.com/forums/52-burgman-400-2007-model/45464-dark-side-blowouts-3.htmlWhat brand and size car tire are guys using? I used a Yokohama 145-12 on my Honda Reflex. No modification needed. Would like to get away with the same thing on my 07 Burgman 400.
No, it's not safe,What do you mean by "darkside'? Is it safe to use car tires on the burg?
Looks like pretty good contact. Still, not for me. Enjoy the ride. Be honest. Be kind.No, it's not safe,
"Darkside" means we know it's safe and we don't care that you don't. The darkside is where all the cool kids are. Come to the darkside.
Google Darkside Motorcycle.

I've gone much steeper on my FJR with a "car tire" than this guy did.

PressurePROBLEM: I could not get the new Car Tire to seat ...went as high as a little over 100 PSI trying to seat, finally damaged the bead on the tire....
PS: I question how stable a MC tire that is so rounded is when you are maneuvering or say stopping like on wet pavement. I just always felt the Car Tire was more stable -- Flat on the road during stops and seems to hold good on leans (if anything wants to straighten up).
