If you are doing twisty roads (or track days), the factory recommended 36 psi front 42 psi rear is much too high. Try 30 - 32 and go from there.

The factory high pressure may be ok for high-speed straight-line runs and day-to-day commuting etc.

You know it's bad I probably pay more attention to tire pressure on my sports cars than I do my bikes, I really should be doing it the other way around. Something a lot of cars have now are TPMS tire pressure monitoring sensors mounted inside the wheels that show up as numerical pressure/lb values on the dash & will send a warning if pressure in any tire drops suddenly or below a % from the others. From all the possible info. it's the screen I always have on in my cars so I can hopefully see an issue before a big problem arises like ruining a wheel or even worse, losing control. Why can't we have this on the dash of a sport bike where it could REALLY be even more important. I couldn't care less about mpgs on my H2 or if Im in an economical riding range, either I am or I'm not depending on how aggressive Im riding. I'd rather see real time tire pressures front & rear.

Good point Strade.Kawasaki Concours has it.Also think they 'could' have had a regular fuel level readout as well....but no big deal.Actually,I can't understand WHY they put a fuel display in there like it has.
