My new G310R came with 32.5 psi in the front tire, and 40.5 (instead of 33.5) in the rear.

I'm assuming the dealer just did it wrong. But, maybe there's a reason for over-inflating the rear? Ideas anyone?

They see "GS" and assume 40-42 PSI. They've been doing this for 38 years and the habit is ingrained.

I had the same chat with my dealer (mine came the same way).

I picked my new 310GS yesterday from the dealer and tyres are 30 psi front and 34 psi rear. Manual recommends a lot lower.

So you slide out and the dealer gets to sell another one on insurance >:)

Auto and motorcycle dealers are notorious for this. Sometimes I wonder if they even own a tire gauge.
