I would like to ask some of you more experienced Scooter Riders what do you think is the best air pressure to carry in the rear tire of the Roketa Bali 250? It has the 10" rear wheel, so I'm just wondering what is the best pressure to carry for traction, and handling on the road, and perhaps a more comfortable ride?
Your opinions are appreciated. Happy Scootering!!!!!!

Scooterg; Welcome to the Dawg pound! What part of MD?
I have a Bali 250 with the 10" rear tire, also. Pressure somewhat depends on your weight. I keep mine at under 30 lbs. - about 28 right now - but I only tip the scales at about 150. Some folks make the mistake of pumping up the tires to the "MAX" pressure listed on the side wall. Not good! Too firm, will give a harsher ride as well as potentially being more dangerous on some road conditions.

Scooterg; Lived in Hampstead, Carroll Co. for more than 30 years. Daughter is in Marriottsville area. Migrated to WV Panhandle a few years ago. Pass by your area often on the way.
Glad you found it useful. I have installed a set of tire valve caps with red LEDs that blink when the tire pressure goes 4 or more lbs. below the pressure at which they were originally installed. Helps easily monitor tire pressure.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
