This week, I pick up my eagerly awaited 2014 GRiSO. And with, comes a fresh set of Dunlop RoadSmart III tires. I'm eager to throw a leg over and ride it home.

The only owner's manual I could find was for 2010 bikes with the cast wheels, and it shows a recommended PSI of 33/36 front/rear.

For those of you running the RS3; what PSI have you settled on?

A newer user manual lists the following:

Front : 33.4PSI or for Special Edition 36.3PSI
Rear : 36.3PSI or for special Edition 42.1PSI

Same pressures for solo or with pillion

Terrific. Thank you! It looks to be the same as the older, 2010 manual I found. Those pressures will make for a good starting point.

All good and way ahead of you. Very Happy
I found those recently and the 2010 version was the most recent. I suspect not much changed between then and the 2014 model year, aside from wheels.

Ah, I see. I thought the WSM was newer, but it isn't.

Here's 2012: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Dead link, unfortunately. I did check the site and found the same MY 2010 manual. But I did snag the service manual, so that's a bonus.

I'm happy to report that after nearly 1,000 miles, the RoadSmarts were terrific. I really like these tires for sporty, heavier bikes.

I ran the recommend 33/36 pressures. The front felt great. In the rear, I may drop a PSI as the shock pre-load is quite stiff and that may soften the hard hits a bit.

Otherwise, I highly recommend this tire.

That is good to hear
I found Roadsmart 3 to be excellent on an BMW 1100s - really let me chuck it around Smile

Currently on Maxxis - because they were cheap to the dealer -no complaints but lets see how they wear..
