Forks. Sounds like I mess around with it and then in the end it doesn't make any difference for me because I'm a motorcycle clod.

I thought it was no air trail and release air after air pressure builds up in the forks from use. Add some air pressure street to stiffen up, but like I said I'm a clod. I'll probably not know the difference anyway.

Little surprised how low air in tires as well? I thought tires last longer closer to the upper air pressure?

But I'm not a dirty guy.

It sounded to me like the classis rev limiter sound after a few seconds of wide open throttle, but, it would not be the first time I was wrong. I will be the first to admit when I'm wrong, so show me some kind of proof besides what a buddy said, or what you read or heard, and I will open my mouth and put my foot in it.

On my streetbikes I run about 32 PSI front and rear , a little lower than recommended . On the XR I actually like the recommended 22. The forks I run at 6.

Wow dude. So you have no proof, that's all you gotta say. Get over it? What are you 12?

The dealer ship should be able to take care of you. Plus you get to look at some shiny new bikes and possibly get molested by a salesman.
