What psi your running?

Figured I would ask the question , what psi do you run in your tires? Moco says 36 in the front and 40 in the rear, tires have on them 41 psi max, so what do you guys run?

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

36 front, 40 rear. I generally ride solo. I usually run about 20psi in the air shocks.

38 front 40 back 19,600 miles on this set of dunlops. Got rid of those air shocks and put super shox on. Way better. 80% of miles are two up.

38 front/42 rear, been doing that for years and seems to work out for me. For me it works out on trips that are cooler than Florida, for when I check my air before starting out each morning.

Have always run 36/40 as recommended, but 19,600 miles, CPY84?!?!?! Makes me at least want to go to 38/40!

I thinking of running slightly higher I hear that you get better wear, tires are rated at 41 psi max load, so I think when I'm two up with the tour pak on going to try it, seems like slot of you guys are getting good results from it.
