1/2 PSI...It Makes a Difference

Post by KTMSwade on February 9th 2017, 8:20 pm

Have you ever wondered why your bike just won't handle right? Maybe that suspension just feels off but you can't pin it down. Well, now we know. 1/2 psi DOES matter. So many questions answered knowing that a cheap air chuck can mean the difference between moto or off road nirvana and disaster.

At least in my mind I notice a difference between 12 and 13 lbs on trail I am familiar with.
I was a long time Tubliss advocate anyway. I ran about 11-12 in the front and 6-8 in the rear.

Do you have a link by chance on this story?

I never got to see the silliness as I am still banned to the Isle of Misfit KTMTalkers. This thread was started tongue in cheek for MikeS300.

I do notice the difference in 1 PSI.

I also have a couple of real nice tire gauges and a gauge for recharging the nitrogen on shocks.

I don't really think that you are missing too much over there, the same people are still trolls and get away with it.

Sure changed a lot when the moderating TEAM was disbanded. Oh well, such is life.

The amount of shill product endorsement is blatant now. It's pretty much a time tested formula in performance industry of any kind, get free product to the right marketing vessel and make sales to the novice or entry level enthusiasts. New KTM owners are almost as bad as new HD owners. Some ways, maybe worse.

And in a race or hard core ride, I'm not even thinking about whether my tires are 1/2 psi off. Between Tire Balls and Mousse, zero fucks given yanno? Front tire, set anywhere close to 11 before a ride or race and I'm ready
