Correct Tire Pressure ?

I just got a 2012 R1200R and was wondering what the correct tire pressure should be ? It came from the dealer with 32 PSI up front and 40 in the back. Cannot find any reference to what a good value is for one up riding.

I ran the Metzler Z8 that came on the bike at 36/42 since new. They lasted 7,000 miles which is good by my standards. Grip was good beginning to end. I then put on a set of PR3. Rear was slipping on occasion. Last week I dropped the rear from 42 to 39 psi. What a difference. Grip is back and the tire feels like it did on my RT. Good grip all the time.

Everybody has their preference. If I had not tried I would not know.
