  • How much pressure to apply to adjust rear sport tire!

    People are saying I need to push down at around 70-80lbs of presssure while adjusting the rear sport tire but I feel like that would wear down the tire fast, how much pressure do you recommend while adjusting the rear tire thanks

    You've probably seen this video, but as a brand new user, I thought I would try to help out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GGCMzRcjP8

      I've always used 70-75 lbs for spindle peds. More if slippage exists from too much torque.

        I do about 100-120. I use the 3rd bearing setup though. I wouldn’t put that much on just the crank bearings.

          Not to hijack, but I was under the impression the DIY/How to section is for diy write-ups only.

          You want as much pressure on the rear wheel as possible, trick is to kneel on the deck with both knees, face backwards (towards the motor). Tighten the wheel while balancing your full weight on the deck. Adjust the purple (or silver) epw by spinning it so it forces itself at tightly as possible against the gas tank stand-off. I always lift off the deck slightly to do one extra notch upward on the epw, then full weight again when I tighten the wheel.

          the epw is super important as it keeps your tire from slamming up and bending your crankshaft. If you have a 3rd bearing support, don’t worry about adjusting the epw. Xpeds should have 2 epw’s one each side, all others will have a single epw gas tank side only.

          For higher torque motors you can up the pressure by repeating the same method with the front wheel on a street curb, and the rear wheel on the asphalt.

            Yes this should be moved into the general section. And yes, more good info by dsport
