Default two up avon storms

Hi ,

Normally don't take pillion however wife's car is up the swany and therefore will have to take her to work .

Normally use 33 F / 38 R with preload one off max ( me 15 stone)

Have maxed out preload will I need to up tyre pressures wife about 10 stone .....

have checked avon site and stated 33f / 36r but I guess this is for one up?

Cheers Steve

Most bike manufacturers seem to recommend leaving tyre pressure alone for pillion work. I do not adjust my pressures for for a pillion or other load. I have Storms.

the pressure on the SV 1000 should be upped as Girth had the pleasure of proving to me.650 stays the same

Thumbs up Re: two up avon storms

thanks for all the replies

received email from Avon ( I had asked them re tyre pressures 2 up approx 25 stone of weight)

response :-

Hi Steve,
Yes, I think when running with a pillion you should use 36psi front and 41psi rear.

Best regards,

I found myself quicker and more confident adjusting the preload to keep the static sag the same and keeping the pressures the same. The variation in how it felt was more to get used to, so left it all the same.

your results may vary. Half the fun is in experimenting
