I keep finding cool new things on my bike like this today. Is there a recommended PSI for the front or rear suspension on a 1982?

No front fairing and panniers only. Rarely pillions. Thanks Tachometer Gauge Auto part Speedometer Measuring instrument

The front is 12 to 21 psi, the rear 29 to 54 psi if I remember right.

Dave is right again but go for the lower end on the front and the higher end on the back, that's what works for me, mess with it and you'll find out what works for you. Ain't nothing written in stone.

Would not recommend using compressor to add air, use a hand pump or risk blowing out the seals.

It would take a hellofabuncha pressure to blow the seals but better safe than sorry. I just bump it with the air chuck then let the pressure down to where I want it by checking it with the air gauge. It lets off a couple PSI every time you check it.

My on-board compresser and gauge works great, about 15 in the front and about 35 in the back.
