#1: B12 Avon Azaro's

Posted on 2006-07-23 00:15:50 by toad_oftoadhall

Just occured to me I've been running my Avon Azaro's on my K1 B12 at
the pressures in the owners manual. (36psi front and rear)

However since they're not the OE tyres I guess I should be using
different pressures.

What pressures should I be using?

It seems google groups has put a stray apostrophe in the title of my
post.

Bloody software. :-(

Why? Are you dissasistified with the way the bike is working?


&gt;What pressures should I be using?

The ones quoted on the Avon website perhaps?

The only tyres you'd want to run at Suzuki pressures are the OE &lt;spit&gt;
Macadams &lt;spit&gt; which you might as well run flat or at 50psi for all
the grip they give in the wet.
&gt;&gt;

&gt;
&gt;36 f / 42 r

That's the puppy.

They're not wrong - and it makes a difference, too: not least to the
way the bike turns in.

And while people are looking at it, what should I be running BT46's on
a B6 at?

Bridgestone.co.uk then Tyres, Motorcycles, Tyre Selector, Search my MC

Works fine on mine. The previous owner suggested 42/42 and that also
feels ok but I've generally stuck to 36. Other than issues of banging
the front end down repeatedly when pulling wheelies I'm not sure why he
was doing that www.driverstechnology.co.uk/Tyre-Pressure.htm

Bridgestone has recommended 36F/42R on every bike that I've fitted BTxx to.
