2016 Roadster Tire Pressure

Hello All, I am new owner (bought about 3 months ago) and trying to find out what is the recommended tire pressure for my 2016 Roadster.

The sportster manual I received lists out all the sportster models and tire models, but the Roadster is not listed and neither are the tires.

Does anyone know this info?

Thanks!

Should be marked on the sidewall of the tire.

Keep in mind the MAX PSI when the tire is cold is normally what is marked.

+1. It has to be marked on the tire. If your eyes are like mine you may need a light and magnifying glass to read it though.

And sometimes the ability to damn near stand on your head comes in handy.
Of course rolling the bike a little one way or the other may be easier.

Refer to your owner's manual. Then try different pressures( only a few pounds) to feel the difference nad decide on your pressure. Starting with the factory pressure is never a bad thing, but sometimes it needs adjusting for your total weight and style of riding. The pressure on the side wall is not the recommended running pressure.
