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.)
