To convert kg to lbs., multiply by 2.2.

I would disregard what the manual states and go with the recommended PSI imprinted on the side of the tire. Most tires will be around the 30-35 PSI range.

Great thank you. I didn't think 4.4 was going to do it.

I just found a conversion chart that states between 28-29 psi equals 2.0kgs.

There is a plate riveted to the plastic below the cubby with the vin, tire size and recommended tire pressure. Do not go by the tire pressure at maximum load on the tire sidewall as many heavier scooters use the same tire. If you rarely ride a passenger on the back, I'd go 24f 26r. I had an Adly 50 with the same tires and those pressures were also stamped on the vin plate. My RH50 2017 with fat 10" tires says 28f 28r in the manual. The dealer put 30 lbs in each tire and any small pot hole or bump upsets the suspension. Went 25f 26r and it handles much better. Of course these are cold tire pressures. Also buy a decent tire pressure gauge,

I should have mentioned I weigh 175 pounds and never ride double
