So hard to get to the 650 valves to get an accurate read I broke down and bought the above which works the charm.
That said . We set it up 40 and 40 cold which I found too stiff on the front end so dropped it to 39.
That seemed fine most of the day of a 200 mile ride today through the twisties. As the tires heated it got to 41 and 43 which was acceptable.
But later in the day as the temp rose it got to 43 and 47!! and I really found the front end jarring at that kind of pressure on downhill twisties.
Now I'm torn as I like the lighter feel the higher pressure in the warmed up tires gives but was surprised at the range of change.
Anyone else using a real time gauge have some insight.
Going for a longish ride in PA twisties and want to settle on a cold tire pressure that gives me reasonable stick and ride comfort even when it gets hot.
Any thoughts. I'm thinking of seeing how it does over time and if there is any pressure loss but **** that was jarring and a bit uncertain with pressures up that high ( Metzlers on ).
This was the related thread and in light of how high the pressure goes up on a hot day/ride - maybe Suzuki's 33/36 has some value as from the looks of it that could end as high as 38/41 when fully warmed and I certainly felt the bike to be more skittish when the pressure was up in the 40s hot.
