So I have had my 2016 for just over a month and it has the TPMS which tells me what the pressure is, but I am not sure where to find out what the pressure should be. We don't have a plate in the door jamb like a car that spells it out (and I didn't get a manual with the bike).

Is there a source on the web that specifies ideal tire pressures (solo and/or two up) that someone can point me to?

For the manual you can go here
Shoulbe be around 36 psi on the front and 42 psi on the rear, but confirm on your manual

Thanks! Looking at the pdf I did not find the tire pressure table but it did say there should be a table under the seat. Will go looking for that when the workday is over.

Correction, it is there in the manual but I got a manual with the english spelling, so look for "tyre pressure" where "tire pressure" only found a certification page for the TPMS.

2.5 bar front and 2.9 bar rear which is 36psi and 42 psi as jjcp said (for a 2016).

Will need to pump up my tires a bit tonight. IIRC they were at 29/36 psi which was not low enough to cause TPMS to complain apparently.

Suggestion: Follow the reading at the gas pump, TPMS might not be 100% correct...
