Tire pressure


I have just bought KTM390 and I am wondering what is the ideal tire pressure for front/rear tire? I tried to google but could not find.

Anyone can help?

The 2013 Repair manual says 29psi (2.0bar) front & rear for solo riding, 29psi (2.0bar) front & 32psi (2.2bar) rear if two-up.

Running 31 rear and 29 front for me. Seems perfect at that.

I will openly and shamelessly admit to never having checked mine...

Heavy riders can{and should} adjust their rear pressure to compensate, just don't exceed the recommended pressures. I am a big guy and I never run the "solo" pressure. If you are 180lbs or lighter then the solo recommendation should be fine. However there isn't much difference between 29 and 32 PSI.

Insert comment here!

For track 32 front / 30 rear for anything above 15 degrees celcius

Faster and Faster untill the fear of death subsides.....

Thank you all for your helpful answer.

Summary, we should use 29/29-32 for front/rear tire. I will get my bike checked.

I weight around 80-85 Kgs and after tweaking the rear suspension stiffness I use 27 rear/30 front.
