Hello everyone,
I have a doubt
What tire psi are you running on new model 2019 front wheel 19" ?
Thank you so much
Patrick

36 psi is what it says in the manual. Not sure what that is in bar - 2.5? I'll probably go a bit lower but that's just personal preference.

USA manual has it at 29psi front 41psi rear-when I saw that I had a flash back to my Suzuki DL days if you ran less than 36psi on the front the tire would wear weird-so you sure your manual has it at 36psi front because if it does it would make sense

My Dutch manual says:
2.0 Bar / 29 PSI on the front wheel
2.8 Bar / 41 PSI on the rear wheel

If i visit the Bridgestone website and enter the 2019 model iT gives me the A41 tyres with:
2.5 Bar / 36 PSI on the front wheel
2.8 Bar / 41 PSI on the rear wheel

The Dunlop website doesnt have a 2019 model.
The Michelin website the 2019 model is still  on 17 wheels.
The Metzeler website has no tyres for a 2019 model.
So there is no data from these manufacturers.

Personally i also have set my tyrepressure to 36 and 41 PSI.
But i will try the 29 PSI to see what happens.

Many thanks for your answers
36 PSI seems too high for the front wheel ?
I think I will follow the recommendations of the manual:
29 and 41 PSI

I've been running the 29/41 and it seems fine to me.  Maybe a to hard for a dirt road but on pavement I've worn off my chicken strips. 
Woot. woot.

Set my tyre pressure to 29/41 last week and did 500km, no problems.
Bike handles really good with this setting.

-pro, the front tyre heats up equally to the rear tyre, this was not the case when i ran it on 36 psi.

-con, the front tyre reacts more to irregularities like grooves and markings.
