    Hi Guys
    I just can't find any info on what's the correct tire pressure in the owners
    manual. Any idea where I can verify this?.

    There should be something in the manual but if not, the max pressure will be on th side of the tire.
    I ride on 08 Ultra (almost always 2 up) I run 40 to 42 in the read and 38 to 40 in the front.

    It should be in the manual. It is on the vin plate located under your tank on the left side of the frame right at the triple tree

    Also depends on the brand of tire.
    Some take more than Dunlops.

    Each MANUFACTURER will have a recommended tire pressure (front and rear) depending on the specific tire and how it is being used (two up, solo, etc.). The info in the Harley manuals are for the OEM supplied tires (Dunlops). These numbers MAY NOT be right for other brands of tires. Go to that manufacturers information and use THEIR recommended tire pressures for the specific application.
