Thanks for that. Will do it in the morning. Just another question, where is the oil filter located. I have bought the filter. Also when dipping the oil do you just take the Reading when the dipstick is resting and not screwed in. Cheers
That's still quite low. Depending on tyres and stuff (check the manufacturer website) ofcourse...
For the dommie I always used 32 and 36, using the values in the booklet makes it a bit of a camel on the road. I can't imagine a Vigor needing less pressure than the NX.
The oil filter is on the right side of the engine, near the front behind a little plate with 3 bolts. And yes, you don't screw the dipstick in when measuring, though it doesn't really matter that much considering the length between the min and max marks. ;-)
Don't forget to run the motor for a while before checking the oil level to make sure that no oil is accumulated in the crankcases (wet sumping). If you simply top up and there is oil in the crankcases you'll have it all over the place once it scavenges.
I'll stick with my 26 front 29 rear, any higher and it just seems too hard a ride. I'm a very ampley proportioned chap and the handling seems spot on to me at these pressures. Looking at the tyres the wear seems very even and I cannot detect any flat spotting etc.
