    To do the 15/3 you have to have the bike level from the start. 15 mins, shut it off and wait 3 min then check it with out screwing it in.

    Try that and see what happens. It should be more consistent.

    The bike has to be level throw the whole process.
    Good combo for the nine. 265/40/18 or P265/45R 18 Michelin Pilot Sport and Metz 130/70/18 front. Try it, youll like it.
    What other people think of you is none of your business.
    Never judge someone by the opinion of another.

    Many of us just do the cold check. Let it sit over night, pull the stick to see where the level is. Mine is usually lower to midway up the stick before the full mark.

    IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW FAST YOU GET THERE, IT'S ABOUT THE RIDE ITSELF. TAKE YOUR TIME AND ENJOY IT!!
