Being new to hacks, I've asked around about front tire pressure. Everybody I talked to has basically suggested running the air at about the same pressure as on a bike. In other words--high! I'm not sure I understand this. I understand about contact patches and friction and whatnot on a leaning motorcycle. But on a hack the front tire doesn't lean. This means the front tire basically has the same job to do as a car front tire--steering and braking. That said, it seems I should run my front tire softer than on a bike in order to increase the size of the contact patch. My screwed up logic suggests this will result in better braking and steering, and improved mileage too. I'm not talking about ridiculously soft so that you risk damaging the rim. I'm talking about softer than HARD. Like on my GSA, the recommended 2-up front tire pressure is 36 lbs. So why not run it at around 26 lbs? Some of you guys who are wearing out tires real fast right in the middle of the tread, wouldn't you get better performance and more mileage if you bled out some of the air? I suppose this discussion applies to the rear tire and the sidecar tire too, for that matter, since none of the tires need to lean. Like I said, I'm new to hacks, so please explain why my logic is messed up. I'm forgetting something, right?
