The owner's manual for your bike is availabe from the Yamaha website as a pdf - click below or cut and paste this into your browser.

Tyre pressures for your bike depend on load and vary from 33 psi front 36 psi rear for bike plus rider/load up to 90kg to 36 psi front and 42 psi rear for rider and load combined above 90kg.

It also recommends tyre manufacturers and sizes as follows:

Front tire:Size:120/70 ZR17M/C (58W): BRIDGESTONE BT020F GG or DUNLOP/D252F

Rear tire:Size:180/55 ZR17M/C (73W): BRIDGESTONE BT020R GG or DUNLOP/D252

Hope this helps.

it is good to go to a tyre manufacturers website especially if you have an older bike fitted with modern tyres . for example the air cooled RD,s had recommended tyre pressures of 23 front 29 rear in the instruction books, with modern rubber they handle a lot better at a higher pressure i think 26 f 33 r as recommended on the manufacturers websites
