Will be installed next week.  The 110/80 front and 150/80 rear for my 2000.  I saw the tires before I had the wheels removed from the bike-what can I say, my son called me and wanted to ride down to Barber for the DMG races, and I noted the rear tire said max inflation 50 psi.  I don't think I'd go that high, but how about 42-44?  TIA

I have the  Storm II and  I just got tire pressure monitors.  When tires get warm the pressure goes up quite a bit. It should go up 10% so here is where i am.
41 is what I have  up front and it  seems to be very close. I have  43 in the back and that  is too high (it goes up over 47.5 when riding) so I think 42 in the back maybe better.
Go with 40 front  - 42 back for now and I will do the same and let you know how mine works out. That should work.

Thanks for the info.  Just curious, what tire pressure monitors did you get?

I bought these.
I saw them as low as  $129 on Ebay  but they are gone now.
