What pressure for Michelin PR4 ??

Just fitted front Michelin PR4 and saving to get rear one as well.
Can somebody tell me should I follow Owner's Manuals about pressure or this tire needs more?
Thanks

Metzeler used to post recommended pressures on their web site. When I bought the Michelins I telephoned the Michelin customer service and asked about pressures. The rep said to use the pressures shown on the sticker on the swingarm and in the owner's manual. That recommended 33F/36R has worked very well so far with the PR3 for solo riding. (Note that the pressure on the VIN sticker is not the recommended riding pressure. It is the required pressure to carry the full maximum weight each end of the bike is rated to carry, which very few of us ever carry. Nor is the pressure on the tire sidewall the recommended riding pressure. That is the pressure required to carry the maximum load the tire is rated to carry.)

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
