Hi. I have finally changed the front wheel to the wider 3 spoke type and fitted radial tyres (Rear wheel was done some time ago) 
I have set the pressures to 33/39psi - has anyone any experience playing with tyre pressures - or using radials? Would like to check I'm on the right track.
Cheers
Steve

You'll find that most of us run at 38/42. It gives far better feedback than the OEM recommendation which itself was based on the tyre technology available then.

I've got a 100/90-R18 Continental RoadAttack2 CR on the front and find 40 PSI is best because it's not quite as stiff as the bias plies. Sounds crazy but it works.
