Default Tire pressure?

A buddy of mine told me to run 45 psi front and 50 in the back on my 2015 cvo street glide what do you guys think?

Run what your manual says. The PSI on the sidewall is the MAX you can run.

No on the pressure and if you still have your manual, check that to see what it says.

does your buddy ride? Lol. Hell no!

go with the manual like others have said. If you are an agressive rider, go down a few psi lower.

I actually run less air than what the manual says to get more rubber on the road. And I read it on here in the Soft Tail Section. It makes sense to me.

I think you should follow the sticker on the bike that states the air pressure.
