1190T tire pressures

Hi guys.I am wondering what tire pressures do you prefer for 1190 T,for onroad usage with or without second person and without panniers.Personally i use 34 psi front and 37 at the rear.What are your personal preferences?

The manual says 35 front and 40 rear...it refers these pressures for 2 persons and panniers,in other words full load.I believe such pressures are extremely high for everyday usage without panniers...

I think thats quite allright. Thats 2.4bar and 2.7bar. The bikes weight, including you, +300 kilo's and it is not an extra reinforced tire like you find on heavy touring bikes.
Maybe you could go for 1.5psi (0.1bar) less on both, but i wouldn't do that. Fully loaded (2up and lugage) i would put 1.5psi (0.1bar) more on both front and back.

Page 147 of my manual says

solo/with passenger/full payload
meaning it can be a solo rider or a rider with passenger with luggage

Front 2.4 bar 35psi
Rear 2.9 bar 42 psi

these pressures are genarlly the same with most bikes and what the manufacturer recommends.
If you are aseeking an ideal pressure it could be either up or down.
Keep in mind that as the tyres get up to temperature they will increase in pressure.

Personally I like this:

Front 36 psi
Rear 43 psi

I keep mine at user manual recommendation values

does anybody know below what pressure the sensors trigger the low pressure warning?

I believe the rear is also 30 psi. With 140 miles on the clock, I picked up a nail in the rear tire. After patching I was able to get 27 psi when warmed up and the warning light was still on...
Still waiting on the new rear tire to come in....I want to ride her bad!

Thats a big YES, tyres perform best when they have air in them.
Also keep in mind that a very hot day will increase your tyre pressure.
A cold day may take heat out of the tyre etc..

If you 1 or 2 psi on each tyre it will not matter.
What you are looking for is a complaint ride where the bike performs best.
So tyre pressure is essential to that..

However each person is diffrent and what works for me may not be ok for you..

Anyhow i gotta tell ya I love eating spanakapita its delcious...
