It's really personal preference...I am currently on new Progressive 416's (Dual coilover/air) and running about 30psi. When I had the original shock setup, I normally ran 50psi for two up....

wingpiolot's right, you'll have to find a pressure that's right for you. when I had stock shocks I ran about 42 psi and now with the 416 shocks I'm running 27 - 30 psi. I hardly ever have a passenger

It kind of depends on your comfort level. Riding solo, I run 25 PSI in the rear and O in the front.
