This tyre pressure sticker is on the left rear swing arm of my new Z900

Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?

Mine was until I removed it lol. The only sticker left on mine is the tech info sticker on the swingarm. All the others on the swingarm and the tank are gone. Interesting that the tyre pressure are based on 180kg load. I weigh in at 255lbs (115kgs). Stands to reason that if thats the pressures they recommend for that load, then it should be lower for less load.

Also raises another question for me. I cant get my suspension sag settings where they should be with the range of adjustment available on the stock setup. Have gone into this at great length on the suspension pages of this forum. However, based on that sticker, if they are saying 36 front 42 rear for a load of up to 180kgs, surely the suspension should be upto the job of carrying that kind of load without changing springs, valves etc? If its not, then why base the tyre pressures on a load that the suspension isnt capable of carrying/being adjusted to account for?
