Roadster Tire Pressure

Hello fellow members. I was wondering if what tire pressure do you put in in your roadster? I've been googling it but no luck. The manual given to me by the dealer is for sportster models not including the roadster.
Will 36psi front and 40 psi rear advisable?
Thanks.

I just called my dealer about this question. I was told Max is 42 PSI cold, with ideal 36-40 PSI. So your plan sounds fine.

While browsing in the website of Harley, I was able to see the online Owner's Manual of the Roadster.

Here's the recommended Tire Pressure...(FRONT = 36 psi) and (REAR = 42 psi)

Cheers!

Anyone here planning to play around with those numbers, I know not everyone sticks to the exact OEM numbers as those are just general for everyone regardless of where you're located

More of a matter of checking the tire wear and feel of em' and then going from there. Make sure they're getting scrubbed and not marbled

You can view the owners manual online at the H-D SERVICE INFORMATION PORTAL, enter your VIN, then click on Vehicle Documents on the upper left.

You can also get the Electrical diagram and Parts manuals downloaded, the Owners manual doesn't download entirely in one file.

tire pressures

Most Harley-Davidson® bikes are furnished with Dunlop® the tire pressures (cold) ought to be 36psi front and 40psi back. Additionally, check your tires for lopsided track wear and any crumbling in the sidewalls and in the actual track.
