I looked on my tires and it said 36 front / 41 rear. That seemed a bit to hard for me so I have taken it down to 32 front / 36 rear and it feels much better. Just curious??????????

You should decide beforehand what type of riding you are going to do.

If you plan to just cruise along, 34/38 should be about right, as the tyres are not going to warm up a lot, but if you are planning to do hard riding in the twisties or track day, you should lower the cold temps a bit as the tyres are going to heat up quite a lot, thereby raising the pressures dramatically.

When I plan some hard riding, I stick to 32/32 cold (2.1-2.2bar)

This also depend a lot on the type of rubber you are on. Softer tyres heat up more requiring softer cold pressures and harder rubber will heat up less requiring harder cold pressures.

38 psi cold for the rear sounds pretty good, but 34 psi cold seems a little soft for the front. how much do you weigh? Have you done any suspension tweaks? Just askin`.
