front should be 33 and rear should be 36, so they are rather overinflated. I'd correct it as it with impair the profile.  DB

tyre presssure

i have had a look on the side wall but it doesnt say on there and the bike is a 1993 model so the bike data is a little out of date for modern tyres

Tyres

I think there's enough air in, if they are only flat at the bottom. :ph43r:

If in doubt

Use the tyre pressures stated in the handbook,

 I must admit sometimes I wonder if they are right. I have a sticker on my swing arm stating pressures for michelin tyres but I have pirelli diablo corsa's fitted.

The tyre pressures may vary from bike to bike depending on suspension and type of bike.

If still not sure ask a tyre fitter. :unsure:
