I know the owners manual says 32 and 32 or 40 for the rear if you have a passenger but wasn't that for the original tires from back in the early 80's. I asked this question and was told to go with what was on the side of the new tire for max psi. I therefore put 40 psi In my tires as that's what they said. Should we go by owners manual or what the tire manufacture calls for? Thanks. Ed
Thanks to all who answer and help. It is greatly appreciated!

The tire pressures in the owners manual are for the tires supplied with (and specified for) the bike. If you have different tires on the bike, then you should be going by the tire manufacturers recommendations.
