Tyre Tips:

Under inflated tyres can result in imprecise cornering, higher running temperatures, irregular tread wear at the edge of the contact patch, fatigue cracking, overstressing and eventual failure of the tyre carcass.
Over inflating tyres does not increase load carrying capacity, but will result in a hard ride and accelerated tire wear in the centre of the contact patch.
Check cold tyre pressure frequently with a good quality gauge that holds a reading, and always before long trips.
For high-speed, fully loaded or dual-riding touring motorcycle applications, inflate front tyres to maximum recommended by vehicle manufacturer for fitment and rear tyres to maximum load inflation pressure on sidewall. Rear touring tyres must be inflated to a minimum of 36 psi for light to medium loads and 40 psi for dual riding and other loads. Never exceed maximum load indicated on tyre sidewall or vehicle capacity load found in owner's manual.
Loss of pressure may occur due to worn out or badly seated valve cores. Check valve cores. If necessary, tighten for correct seating, or remove and replace them. A plastic or metal valve cap with an inner gasket should be used and installed finger tight to protect the valve core from dust, moisture and to help maintain a positive air seal.

Repeated loss of tyre pressure may result from undetected tyre damage. Visually inspect tyres for punctures, cuts, abrasions, cracks, bulges, blisters or knots. Only certain punctures in the tread area may be repaired, and only if no other damage is present. If in doubt Lakeland Motorcycles Staff will be happy to check your tires and tire pressure.
