so, i just pulled a rivet out of my back wheel(fully deflated, mustve done it yesterday).. tried taking the rear wheel off... and the **** off massive exhaust makes it impossible. its already dark and i dont have the light/patience to figure out how to dismantle the exhaust tonight.. but is this correct? do i have to remove the exhaust to be able to remove the rear wheel? or is there a trick I've missed? feels like a engineering fail..

this was the first time i attempted to remove the exhaust.. and its a lot easier than i thought it would be. just need allen keys or a bit that goes in the drill, and a socket set, and its off in a few minutes.

Yes, it's really no hassle when you know exactly which key and spanner you need. I used to change the end cans frequently on my Hayabusa, from race to road-legal, it took minutes.

I actually havent checked the air pressure since getting the tyre back.. i just do the feel test before jumping on... lol. I prob only bother with testing the pressure maybe every 2 weeks.. sometimes 3. but ive been babying the tyre a little bit, but the plug seems fine so far.

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.
