Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Honda and Bridgestone have different recommendations for BT45. Neither should cause any damage to the tyre though. I can only suggest taking it back to the tyre place and say that you think it is defective. Maybe it was really old from laying around in a warehouse somewhere for ages.

The one page of the wiki I've never bothered to read but one of the most helpful, Thanks!

Usually the pressures written on the sides of the tyres are the maximum pressures and loads - not usually what you want.  What pressures have you been using?

The ones that Basil posted earlier look like the ones that Bridgestone recommend (which are a little higher than the 'original' pressures for the bike that are written on the chainguard) - probably the best thing to use.

I run 36/42 PSI on all tyres on all bikes, but I consider myself a tyre/suspension cretin; I just ride.
