new k270's... I geuss thats just how they ride?

so i put my k270's on today, took it out for a 20 mile ride back to my place, im probably just paranoid but damn they ride rough... im guessing they're knobbies and thats how they're gunna.... anybody experience the same issue, i think i have my chain a little too tight also. what does everybody run for psi in their tires?

and since im too lazy to go count, whats the stock sprocket tooth count?

so i added about another 100miles of riding on these tires since last post, still can't get used to cornering with em, they'll be great for trail riding, we have a weekend trip planned for memorial day to hit the state forest trails in PA. but im thinkin a set of kenda k761's for normal riding will be on order since they only take about and hour to swap out. i have a trip planned in august to go out to the smoky mountains and one to vermont in july so these tires just won't cut it for that...

I only have 250 miles on my 09 with the stock tires and they seem just fine to me on the street.. haven't been in the dirt much so far .. only about 60 of those miles.

i had a set of pretty wooped duro trails on it when i bought it, i looked into a package deal for k761's not bad like 135 shipped.... they washy shakey feeling is too much for my riding style i like to throw this bike into corners and it stuck pretty good but these tires are slowing me down on the street pretty good, like i said two pairs to swap depending on riding won't be a real big issue, i might look around for another cheap set of rims so i don't have to dismount them all the time...
