Jim;

A good rule of thumb is to check your pressures immediately after a 2-3 hour ride. It should be about 10 % over your cold pressure.In your case should be 46 front and 53 rear approx.
In the tire section there is ALOT about pressures.

That is what I did, just go to the web site and get the correct air pressure.
