I noticed today that the Yamaha recommended front tyre pressure for the 06 FJR has gone up to 39PSI. On the older models it was 36PSI.
I wonder why that is? :?

Viagra for tyres...wot next :crylarf: All hot air if you ask me. Seriously tho, probably something to do with weight distribution change, or they have had more chance to test and found it makes a difference.

I think rabbit and malki are correct. The '06's longer swingarm would put more weight on the front and the bike does weigh more to boot. I hope it keeps the 020's from "cupping" as quickly.
