Morning all,

Triumphs’ own pages give the recommendations.

Up to 2017 36/42 then 32/39.

However, despite the 32/39 in the manual I still prefer 36in the front of my ‘17 XRT.

The change in recommended pressures came before 2017 = the owners manual for my 2016 Gen 2 recommends 32/39.

The argument / debate between bike makers recommendations v. tyre makers recommendations is never ending. Take the figures as what they are ( recommendations ) and then by sensible small increments adjust pressures up or down to suit your own personal preference. Just remember that variables like payload, riding style, road surface & weather will effect cornering & braking grip and mileage.

My experience having changed to 2.5/2.9 (36/42) is that the bike rides really well.
Of course I have changed two variables at the same time tyres and pressures...
In any event the handling is excellent even in the current low temperatures so I'm happy.
Will of course see how the wear pans out...
