new rear shocks-how much air pressure?

New progressive 416's rear due to the originals breaking under stress. These things are totally different from stock. Those of you who have them on a 1200, where do you set the air pressure? I've been trying to experiment and haven't quite found the setting and was wondering where to start. We also do a lot of 2 up on this and that will be a different setting. Right now, I'm at about 20psi by the plaque on the right side fairing next to the compressor buttons.
There's also the temp gauge. I have never exceeded 4 bars on the temp gauge. What does anyone else see? I'm wondering how accurate it is sometimes. The fan comes on at 3 bars and it's pretty hot by then by the air that comes up from the engine. Just wonderin.... :?:
