Check your motorcycle tire pressure often when the tire is COLD. Michelin recommends checking the tire pressure every two weeks and during long rides.
Never bleed air from a hot tire. This may result in reduced operating air pressure. Use an air pressure gauge that is consistent and accurate. Correct inflation is essential for user safety, comfort and tire durability. Compliance with motorcycle manufacturer recommendations as to inflation pressures is a key factor for road holding, both in a straight line and when cornering, even at moderate speeds and during braking. Riding at pressures other than those recommended may result in premature wearing of the tire and, in the case of under-inflation, irreversible damage to the tire or unexpected failure resulting in injury or death.
