tire pressure help

I have the Bridgestone Battlax BT020 on my 2008LT. I am embarrassed to say I am confused on the tire pressure. I ride two-up.
Any help would be appreciated

Re: tire pressure help

Most of the long time owners run 42 front and 48 rear without regard for load. Seems to give the best mileage on the rubber and still have good performance in the twisties.

2009 K1300GT Red Rocket
2009 R1200GS (Gone)
2005 K1200LT Ocean Blue Blue Wizard 110 K and counting...
2006 Bushtec Turbo+2 Spell
2004 330 Ci Convertable

Have ridden a Motorcycle in all 48
But lack DE, MA, RI and CT with the 2005 LT

Re: tire pressure help

+1 on the 42/48....I ride 2 up all the time and get a new set of Bridgestones every year. They wear well and handle well. I get 11K to 13K out of a set. Ride safe.........

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
