Hi,

Does anyone out there know what the tyre pressures should be for a GL 1500 EML

ello fellow trike rider :waving:

aint three wheels jus sooo much fun

i run at 35lbs in front and 20 in back

tyre wear is very good btw

tho there was talk of being able to run down to 14lbs in rear to iron out a few mo bumps ive not tried that

i saw a fax from EML confirming this but i think find a pressure that suits u and ur pillion

GURUS i see there are no trike smileys puleeze amend :gunhead:

Thanks for info. its near enough to what i am running at now, [32 front, 21 psi rear]

I understand that you can run the rear anywhere between 14 psi & 28 psi which seems to me a lot to play about with, so i thought i would go for 21 it seems to be about right.

As for the rear air suspension, solo i run at zero, two up i run 10 psi does that sound to be ok? [We are only lightweights]

We bought the trike back end of summer so i did not have much time to play around with tyre pressure & suspension before it was put to bed for the winter.

ROLL ON SUMMER,

Mick.

Mick, mid-20's psi is accepted by most trike builders and buyers. It's supposed to be better as it helps prevent the back end hopping all over the place and skipping in turns etc.
