And also, I finally replaced the useless factory dunlop on the front finally with a Pirelli MT21, and it's better(gravel), but not great. Gravels mainly what I ride on. Are your guyz bikes squirrely on loose soil too? Thanks for the input
In my area I wouldn't run lower than 18psi. Any 400lb motorcycle will be squirrely on gravel/dirt. You'll get use to it or learn to steer with the throttle. Bike settles down when on the gas...
