30 PSI for now

Today went to a petrol station at lunchtime to pump up the tyre, but wasn’t sure what pressure to go to. Luckily there was a biker pumping up his tyre as well, so I asked. He said he always went up to 34, so I figured I would get to 30 PSI for now.

I pressurized the tyre but one part didn’t pop into the rim, and I thought that it was the tube stuck or doubled up there. So I deflated it and went back to work. I rang the motorbike shop I got the tyre from and asked. They said you can easily pump it up to 100 PSI to pop it into place and then deflate it. So after work, drove past another petrol station, pumped it up to 50, and yes after a minute it popped nicely into place. Then let some air out and now its just beautiful. Really happy with the result !!!!!
