Based on some things I've read here, I'm running 2-3 psi above OEM recommendation. Have never run low pressures on this bike, but from experience with other bikes I know the handling and turn-in can get sloppy if the pressure gets too low. So it seems it would be better to be a little on the high side than the low. Of course, all this assumes you have a very accurate gauge.
John, you'll get answers that range all over the place. There is no consensus.
Try telephoning the customer service number for your brand...1-615-937-3442 for Bridgestone, for example. Pls let us all know what they say.
I'm 200# + gear, I run 33/36, and the center wears when I'm on a straight road. The sides wear when I can find a fun road. Others run pressures up to the tire's max, 42, or the pressure to carry the max the bike is rated to handle at each end, 41. Neither is the recommended pressure unless that much weight is actually on the tire, but they like the results.
