The handbooks were always specific: for Gen 1 36 & 42, and for Gen 2 32 & 39.

And the same 32 & 39 for the Gen 3  :002:

As Will says, use the right pressures for the model Tex you have  :152:

@gufazi - not sure what handbook you have but mine doesn’t say 36/42 (except in the pictures) which for a Gen-2 is incorrect. 32/39 as shown in the body of the text are the recommended pressures for a Gen-2 (and I double checked with a Triumph themselves).

Thanks, I'm definitely using 32/39 now.  But my manual says 36/42.  Maybe the U.S.A. got some misprinted manuals, or previous gen, or the copy editor went a little crazy changing all the "tyres" to "tires" and wanted to mess with us.  :156:

Geez, the front tire size is wrong on the manual, too.  Good thing I didn't rely on it when I replaced the Tourances  :232:

** Upon closer inspection, I have a Tiger 800 manual.  How'd my dealer do that!? :430: **

That would explain a lot...  :155:

Working together we all go to the bottom of the issue.  :158:

After having my OE front Metzler wear so badly, I went the other direction. My original front cupped & wore the inside & outside of the tire so badly that it looked Like I had been running 20 PSI in it. I'm running 40 pounds front & rear now and the Shinkos I've been running are wearing perfectly. I've got around 8,500 miles on the current front & it still looks like new.

What Shinko's are you running??  I'm about done with my stockers and were looking at them... 705's I believe.

Thanks,

Had PR4's Trail fitted 1000 miles ago and running 32/39.  Has transformed the handling on road......

I'm running 705s. Fabulous tire for the price. I've got a riding bud that's using the 804 & 805 knobbies on his TEX and on his 800XC and swears by them. Personally I like the way the 705 radials handle better and I can't talk myself into anything less than an H speed rating...

Don't rely on the TPM for an accurate pressure, I reckon mine over-read by at least 5-7 psi. I had been assuming it might be with 1 to 2 PSI but not at all. After my service last week the TPMS was reading a stupidly high figure and I thought the dealer had made a basic error. On a check with an accurate gauge the presures were factory plus 1 or 2 PSI. I have to say the handling at low speed manoeuvring is pleaseantly better. (Bridgestone A41's)

I was rather surprised how accurate my TPMS are = they agree with both my digital & mechanical gauges.
