Pressure

  • What is the correct pressure for my tyres on the road?

    The mandatory pressure for road use is set by the manufacturer. It can be found in the Owner's Manual of the vehicle or on the vehicle itself. The inflation pressure indicated in these documents is for inflation when cold. In the absence of these documents, contact the manufacturer network. NB: The maximum pressure indicated on the tyre should under no circumstances be considered safe for road usage.

  • What is the correct pressure for my tyres on the track?

    The inflation pressure for track use is indicated in the Michelin tyre documentation for track product ranges. It may also be consulted online at "passion for riding" / "on track" . If you do not have this information to hand, refer to the manufacturer's recommended pressure.

  • When and how do I check pressure?

    Check your motorcycle tyre pressure often when the tyre is COLD. Michelin recommends checking the tyre pressure every two weeks and during long rides. Never bleed air from a hot tyre. This may result in reduced operating air pressure. Correct inflation is essential for user safety, comfort and tyre durability. Compliance with manufacture recommendations as to inflation pressures is a key factor for road holding, both in a straight line and when cornering, even at moderate speeds and during braking. Driving at pressures other than those recommended may result in premature wearing of the tyre and, in the case of under-inflation, irreversible damage to the tyre.

  • What are the consequences of under- or over-inflation?

    Correct inflation is essential for user safety, comfort and tyre durability. Compliance with manufacture recommendations on inflation pressures is a key factor for road holding, both in a straight line and when cornering, even at moderate speeds and during braking.
    Driving at pressures other than those recommended may result in premature wearing of the tyre and, in the case of under-inflation, irreversible damage to the tyre.
