    Mornin' Osco. Manual says 36 front and rear (same size) on my '07 Road King Classsic. I keep 'em there.

    I do have a related question: I've noticed that my motorcycle tires don't seem to lose pressure like my truck tires do. I used to check them regularly, but have never had to add, therefore I've become complacent and rarely check them anymore. Does that make sense to you?

      I run my frt at 32 back 34, but I'm running a 47* rake on the Beast! The stock Sporty I run 32/36......

      Rain just check it once in a while, I do once a month and that works for most.

        running my dunlops at 41 front, 41 rear, as per my owners manual for a 2005 XL883L.
        I guess the MoCo wants us low riders to bounce around more than the rest of you guys...LOL!!
        I check my tire pressures twice per month....

            everybody I talk to says thats too high, but the manual calls it out at 41 psi for both tires, and thats what I run. The bike handles fine at those pressures...

              The manual for my 07 RKC states 36 in the front and 40 on the rear for the Dunlops for two up riding which is what I most often do so thats what I have them at. I also check every time I wash it cause its up on the lift when I wash it and seems like a good time to check.

                  I was changin pressure alot when It was cold,,since florida is all hot n sticky I ain't had ta do a thing I check every week end,,They say a tire looses 1 to 2 PSI for every ten degree air temp drop. If I check mine in the cool early am front is 32.5,,If I wait to ride till about noon Its 33.0, Bikes in a garage but thats about a ten degree rise in air temps,,odd

                  I have come back and rechecked with hot tires just for chits n giggles,,33f/37r cold means 34.5f/40r hot. I guess the front tire enjoys the wind,,lol
