    Rear Tire Pressure - 2018 Model

    Hello Group,

    I recently traded in my '13 650GT for the '18 model - which is vastly improved by the way but a subject for a different thread. One difference in the specs is that the '18 manual states that the rear tire is to be set for 42 PSI. The '13 rear tire was set for 36 PSI, unless there was to be a passenger. Then the setting went up to 42 PSI. My question is: does this seem correct to have the rear tire on the new model always set to 42 PSI, whether there is one or two people riding? Could this have been a misprint in the manual? TIA

    I just follow the manual. 36 front, 42 rear. Right or wrong.

    It's not only in the manual but also on the placard sticker under the seat.
