Hey guys, just ordered myself a set of Conti's no idea what pressure i should be running though... :hmmm:
Riding a KX450F 08' on excel's tyres are a 120-150, on a 4.25'' rear..

Conti SMs

2 bar/29psi recommended for those tires on a Husky 701.
I'd personally drop a few psi on the lighter bike.

I love these tires for road riding.

If it was me I'd try 24 front and rear.
Then I'd try 29 front and rear.
I think this is kinda the sensible extremes. A bigger change to make it easier to feel.
See which you prefer and fine tune it from there.

If you feel no difference (I'm not very sensitive to some changes: maybe don't ride hard enough.) just run the recommended 29 f & R - safe, and easy on the tires.

FYI Husky recommends 29 F&R solo, and 29 f and 32 r with a passenger, with these tires. (145kg bike)
