There seems to be quite a bit of variance in recommended pressures - and it
is not to do with the size or type of tyre. The Australian supplement for
my 110 gives substantially higher pressures than the original owner's
manual, from 35/35 unloaded below 110kph to 45/65 at maximum load and
speeds above 130kph. I have found these to be satisfactory pressures, with
my usual moderate loads I run 40/45, fully loaded 45/55 - it doesn't go
much over 110 when fully loaded anyway! Anything lower when loaded results
in swaying and overheating tyres in hot weather (above 40C).
