Hi Lu,

 

Yes we can change tires, and also you can get some help with your suspension too. Best thing to do is if you want to take advantage of our student tire deal, let us know the size, to make sure we have it on hand (usually do for modern sport bikes). Then have our mechanic change it for you (slight fee per tire).

 

Regarding suspension, go over and see the chief mechanic Will, he can give you some suggestions and make adjustments also. If that gets extensive, you can work something out with him.

He very likely might...I don't know those tires well, so no comment :).

 

When you say lower than recommended, what have been the recommended pressures?

 

Anyone else up here running them? You could put the question up in the tires section, see what Steve has to say.

Michelin say's 31 cold in the front and 24-28 cold for the rear...I was running them at 32.5-33.5 hot in the front and 26-28 hot in the rear...so I would be going up a couple of pounds front\rear...I would assume it would change how the bike would feel underneath me....lol
