Thanks. My front is at 32 lbs. Gonna bump it up to 39. The rear is another story. My tire gauge won't fit in there. Any recommendations on a good pressure guage with a flexible hose?

36 Front, 40 Rear. Dunlop 404's with 4,000 km. No appreciable wear, yet! However, I do ride very conservatively.

JIMBOB83,
Honda makes ait's own special tire guage. It is a round guage, with a 45 degree pivot, about 3 inches tall. It is very important to tun the exzact recommended tire pressure because od 1. Tire Wear. 2. Proper Air Shock control, 3 Load Balancing.
Hope this helps.

With my Avon Venom Xs, I run 42(cold) in the front and 45(cold) in the back. I've gotten better than 15K miles out of the first set with no cupping or other bad things and the set that's on the bike now also looks like they're going to go at least as far. The bike handles very nimbly with this pressure set up. The down-side is that the ride is a bit harsher.

For a tire gauge, I found a dual chuck type works well. The "push" side works on the 90 degree stems on my 1500 and the "pull" side worked well on the 1200. About $ 8 at any auto parts store.
