I would start there , then try reducing the pressures a couple of lbs at a time until you find something that suits you.
By the way its the EO-9 Dakar 140-80-18

What did you run it on?

All up Ill be around the 340kg+ mark bike, rider, lots of fuel and a bit of gear Oh and its going to be getting a hard time

Anyone else run one on a 640Adv.With the tyre sitting there unfitted its just over 160mm wide.
I know it will pull in a bit once fitted up but do they fit up alright on the 2.5 rim.

MT21,the new Desert, EO-9 Dakar all 140-80-18's
