Question What psi does everyone ride at with 2 up?

Between my wife and i we are about 450lbs. I did not get a manuel with the bike yet. I have no idea what the max pressure is. Right now i have it set at 40 but it seems it needs to be higher but i dont want to blow out any seals.
Thanks in advance..

Ridin with 45lbs now and seems to be good, had to adjust it around a bit til we dialed it in, we are 350lbs 2 up, the manual says to be at 50lb, 45 seems to be working good with just 2 up and the basics in the tour pack and saddle bags.

Your question does no good if you don't provide info on what year bike. Recommended pressures have changed depending on year.

If the bike is used, how many miles on the bike? Rear air shocks don't last forever.

+1. I used to ride with 20lbs on my 07 Road Glide. I ride with 32lbs on my 2010. When I first got my 2010 I didn't know about the difference in the shocks and the bike was delivered with 0 lbs. I added 20 lbs and the bike road like a truck on a dirt road. Once I made the proper adjustment it was like floating on air.

50# is max in the shocks

50 psi on a 2011 RGC. Yes, 50 is what the manual recommends for 2-up on the 2011's.
