    Tire pressure for 28" ripsaws

    I just bought a set of 28" set of Rip Saws. And i was wondering what pressure I should be running. Others have talked about running 8 PSI. Thinking about running that for my Wolfy.

    I usually run 7-8 front, 8-10 rear depending on my load. With my bead locks, I can run down to 6-7 if needed they seem to stay up pretty good when aired down. It all depends on speed and terrain I'm in.

    Before the new shoes

    Measured at the wheels, ride height should have gone up an inch, i measured two inches of height increase?? I will let the springs settle for a bit then measure again!

    Wheel size has a lot to do with it. You cant go as low with 14's as 12's. Tire size, terrain, speed, riding style and the tire itself will decide for you. Basically as low as possible and as high as necessary.
    Good judgment comes from experience, most of which comes from bad judgement

    How fast you go makes a difference too. Low pressures and speed makes for a drifty ride. Do you typically ride solo or do you carry a heavy passenger? Also note that all the recommendations from folks above are with Gen 1 machines and I am fairly sure we are at least a 100 lbs lighter.

    I run around 12 in mine, my old tires experienced pinch flats at 8-10, so I just run these a little higher and softened the suspension.

    Had to look it up, thought it more than 100 lbs but did not want to put foot in mouth. The x2 weighs 273 lbs more than the Gen 1 per spec weight in OEM literature.
