    Front as low as 0 to max of 7lbs

    Rear....

    It all depends on how you like the ride. Best to experiment.....sorry for the poor answer.

    Just my opinion..and I'm sure others will have theirs....

    Riding by yourself = 3 lbs front and 25 lbs rear

    Riding with passenger = 3 lbs front and 25 to 30 lbs rear

    Just don't go over 7 front and 50 rear. Those are the max's according to the manual anyway.

    Lets open up this board again.
    I have the 2007
    Knowing its under warranty, the shop has me watching the front shocks.. started with front end shake (maybe the new front tire?) Had it balanced, alittle better....
    shocks lost half its air. shop said the front should have max 10 lbs up front, and up to 50 in rear shocks ( 50 fells okay), but front shock makes the bike fell like (squermmy)?
    It fells like, the tires are slipping (like on oil) for a split second, every few, feet.
    Been riding secondary roads, and staying off the highways, til I figure it out.
    when I bring it into the shop next week, I'm going to have them also check the front bearings AGAIN!!! and the swing arm & rear Hub ( new tire)

    anyone have something like this happen to them?

    Well...to start with...your shop needs to read the manual. Max PSI for the front shocks is 7 psi. I wouldn't think that 10 would have blown the seals but it may have. I typically run about 35 psi in the rear and usually zero in the front.
