    I would go with the sidewall recommendation wich changes from one manufacturer to another. Also pay attention the weight limit on the sidewall. Dont forget that when the tire gets hot the pressure increases in them. Safe trip, Take pics.

    What does your Owner's Manual say?

    There should be recommended pressures on the tyre manufacturers web site for your tyre fitted to your bike with fully loaded pressure

    Follow air pressure in owners manual and also set air pressures in shocks as per manual. Be sure to not go over GVWR which is also in manual.

    Owners manual will be good if you have stock tyres fitted the max pressure marked on the sidewall is a do not exceed pressure not a pressure to apply the tyre manufacturer knows more about their tyre than anyone else so their recommended pressure for your application is the one to use
    tyre pressure is a critical safety issue on a motorcycle just get it right

    From dunlop website
    Harley-Davidson | Model: FLHTCUTG (09-10) - Tri Glide Ultra Classic
    Front Rim Size: 3.00x16 | Rear Rim Size: 5.50x15

    Recommended Front Tire:
    Tire : D402F | Size : MT90B16 † | PSI/Loaded : 36


    Recommended Rear Tire:
    Tire : Signature T ** | Size : P205/65R15 | PSI Rear/Loaded : 26


    O.E. Replacement Front Tire:
    Tire : D402F | Size : MT90B16 † | PSI/Loaded : 36


    O.E. Replacement Rear Tire:
    Tire : Signature T ** | Size : P205/65R15 | PSI Rear/Loaded : 26

    So if you have the d402 on the front 36 psi and the signature t on the rear then it is 26
