Thumbs up Correct Tyre pressure for ZMA.

Hey All..

I have a ZMA.. and am confused about the correct air pressure in the tyres.
The sticker on the tank gives two readings, one for riding alone and one with a pillion.

Can someone tell me what is the correct tyre pressure that i should go for.
I have a factory fitted tyre in the front and a Pirelli tubeless tyre in the rear.

Hoping for all you guys help as usual.

Later'

Jazzy

I use 25 and 33 at most times. However It does improve the ride if you use 29 while riding alone.

Will Pirellis have the same PSi?

I fail to understand.. how can we be expected to have different pressures for riding alone and with pilion.. because u cant ride alone all the time and vice versa..

do you normally ride with or without pillion sat 60%-70% of the time ?

its simple if your answer is with pillion then fill that pressure if not then the other...

I think that answers it.. but still would the Pirelli tubeless tyre also need the same tyre pressure as mentioned on the sticker on the tank??
