A longtime ago it seems when my 14a (the fastestcolor red) was relatively new I complained here about having to wrestle it over into a turn, wasn’t an easy turn-in. And either Liquidsilver or Rayzerman , I really can’t remember suggested increasing the tire pressure a little at a time until it felt neutral going into a turn, 40f-42r was the numbers It felt very neutral on my bike with the oe tires. Wrestle/ force in= pressure to low, falls in = pressure to high.
They also said that if a bike “falls” into a turn to reduce the pressure a bit until it feels neutral again, best tuning advice I’ve ever gotten, it just works !
Also as n4 said above adding a tire pressure monitor is some of the best money you’ll ever spend, use metal valve stems with it though.
I added the $50 amazon system,(can’t remember the brand) and I’ll say the only problem I see is with the constant pressure and temperature display it can make you a bit crazy watching it. I’ll add that if you have the pressure close to ideal the temperature will not fluctuate much, maybe 2-4F but there are a lot of variables that affect it.
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
Ride more,, worry less !
