I've had my tire pressure lowered for wheelies for around 2 weeks. I've noticed the bike harder to turn in fast corners. Assuming this is a direct result of tire pressure, are there any other bad side effects of me running a low pressure for long rides. Or for an indefinite period of time?

I'm wondering why bother to put air backin the tire if I'm going to be wanting to ride more wheelies 2 morrow? Should I just air up for longer rides like my 50 mile to work commute and ride on the lower pressure?

it depends on how low the pressure is. I run 31 front and 30 rear iwhen I'm planning on leaning the bike over a bit :cool: or if I'm on a long haul I run stock tire pressures (for tread life)

I ran bridgestones (stock tires) and after 1100 miles in one day from Halifax to Toronto I flat spotted my rear tire because I forgot I left only 32psi in the rear :shock:
