I believe that I was running my rear shock wrong as well, aired up to max 47psi, then read somewhere a couple days ago that it should be checked while on center stand, ooops, I was airing up the shock with bike off stand but holding it, maybe that's why it bottomed out couple times on me. Checked on stand tonight and was only 23psi

on my 1500 with E3s solo 40 each end. Loaded for 2, 42 front 45 rear

Rear air shock is used to level the rear end, or 40-50psi stock R air shock

Low pressure results in higher tire temps, thats bad when the road is 160 degrees!

My 1500 would read 5 psi higher rear shock pressure on the ground than on centerstand
With Progressive airs its 1 psi diff.

See owner book on checking rear height level for rear shock adjustment.

Does the Aspy have schrader valves in the front forks? If so 2-4 psi will cancel most weight transfer under braking nose-dive.
Prog springs in forks will probably be ok as is, but can add air if riding shows its need.

Center stand??

never bothered to worry about that, you don't put your car on a "Center Stand"

Cold Pressure in the morning is what you want,
for me, 42-44 in the front E3,

and the Michelin is running 34 when I set it, and when it gets to 32 I push it up to 34.
but, it is a Run Flat, and that makes a huge difference.

Dunlop recommended pressures for both E3 and E4 on Honda GL1500 is "40 psi rear" & "36 psi front".

uuuh John, I think he meant checking the 1500 rear air shock pressure is supposed to be done on the centerstand.

Not saying on centerstand to fill the tires

duh, read that one wrong, huh?

yup, the rear suspension pressures,on center stand... but I never did that either, just ran it up until it felt good, and for me, that was 57# on my 1500s.
