Tire pressure

OK. Still poking around the new '09 550 XP. Today I adjusted the shocks as they were all on different setting. I decided to check tire pressures. The front were both at 11 lbs. the back were both at 9 lbs. The book says 7 in the front and 5 for the rear so, that's what I set them at. I would think that tire pressure to some extent can be a choice but, that much higher than the book says? What say ye.

I keep them low, get more bite out of them.

I had a couple of compliments last ride in some techincal trails about how well they were forming and griping the terrain.

It's the low pressure.
