    Default tire pressure for 2001 gl1800.

    Anyone tell me what air pressure for tires? I dft says 32 in rear but I see different on this forum, how about the front tires? any help would be appreciated. I just bought the bike and it is being delivered next week. Thanks

    Hello Ed! Welcome to TrikeTalk!

    I have a 2008 GL1800 Motor Trike Adventure kit. I ride solo and at a COLD reading have the rear tires set at 24 psi and the front tire set at 38.

    I will say, out of experience, that for ME a higher pressure in the front tire made for a bouncy, harsh ride. Other people’s experiences and opinions will vary. Play with the pressures until you find your comfort zone.

    Front, likely 38-41 psi would be about right. In the rear "car size" tires, 32 psi is gonna be a bit much, you probably will find 22-25 psi will result in better ride & better wear.
