I was wondering what kinda tire preasure you guys are running, and what type of surface you run it on. My last three rides I have been playing with different settings and just when think I like it, it never seems perfect. Just wondering if you guys know something I dont.

14-15 front 6-8 in back... I dont reccomend anything under 8psi out back without 2 rimlocks and a TeraFlex to help support the bike and keep from dinging a rim. I like about 9-11 for the back tire with a "normal" tire.

Depends on what tire and tubes I'm using. I have a Kenda Millville on the rear of my WR400 and its weight is 13.5 Lbs with the stiffest carcass I've ever felt. I only need to run about 8-6 lbs with a HD moose tube. The Michelin S-12 on my WR280 weighs 11 lbs and they are comparable in size. Sooooooo :naughty: my point is on that tire it feels softer and flexes way more at 13 lbs of air then the Kenda-rock :naughty: at 8lbs. I run Michelin M-12s up front with HD tubes at about 14lbs on both bikes.

Use to run about 10 - 12 front and back, but got tired of denting rims. Run 14 now with various DOT knobbies. Haven't seen a dent since.
