Can anyone tell me the proper tire pressures to use for a 1983 512BBi? I have the stock 415mm wheels/TRX tires. The sticker on the windshield lists it at 3.0KG/cm2 front/back which equals 42.6psi. The Amerispec sticker in my glove box lists it at: 38psi front/back for max load. The Michelin TRX tires are stamped 36psi max on the sidewalls.

What is the correct pressure? I can't imagine running more than the tires recommended max of 36psi....

Have you checked the Owner's Manual? Although I don't have one for the 512, my 365 Boxer Manual states 37 front, 42 rear for "under 130 MPH". Those were XWX's, so not the same thing exactly. Another source might be Coker Tire, as they still produce these from time to time.

Hi.........

Confusion reigns supreme !!! Check out the attachment for a summary of Boxer tire inflation pressure recommendations, as found in the factory shop manuals, owner's manuals and on window stickers.

Unfortunate lack of consistency in the numbers and use of speed "brackets".
