Tire pressure for two passengers?

Default tire pressure for single passenger is 2.2 Bar for front and 2.8 Bar for rear tire. There's no mention about the tire pressure for two passengers. My best guess would be 2.2 Bar for front and 3.0 Bar for rear tire. Is my guess correct?

No, because the max ratng for the rear tyre is just 1 PSI higher than the Vectrix recommendation. You would be over-inflating it according to it's specs.

Max for rear tyre: 41PSI; Front tyre: 33PSI

Have a look at the tire itself, it has the specs on it's side.

This information may be used entirely at your own risk.

There is always a way if there is no other way!

Thanx! I'll keep them at the default levels.

To adjust your Vectrix ride for two up try adjusting the shocks. My 2007 has adjustable shocks that require a spanner wrench...

Look at your shocks and see if they have the adjuster ring ... like this...

Apply spanner wrench to shock and adjust by moving the ring one way or the other
i.e. push the spring up for more tension/stiffer ride or let it down for softer ride.

sorry for the poor quality pics - my first post and hope I do it better with
more practice...
