Higher preasure means that the coolant can take higher temps before boiling over. The main problem with a tougher cap is that if your bike overheats, more than just the cap may pop. (Hoses and such.) Manufacturers always build in a safety margian on these types of things, so there is a possibility that the 16 will work fine, but if possible, I'd try and track downsomething in the right range soon.
