Tire pressure on 500 X 2019 front wheel 19 "

Hello everyone,
I have a doubt
What tire psi are you running on new model 2019 front wheel 19" ?
Thank you so much
Patrick

36 psi is what it says in the manual. Not sure what that is in bar - 2.5? I'll probably go a bit lower but that's just personal preference.

USA manual has it at 29psi front 41psi rear-when I saw that I had a flash back to my Suzuki DL days if you ran less than 36psi on the front the tire would wear weird-so you sure your manual has it at 36psi front because if it does it would make sense

My Dutch manual says:
2.0 Bar / 29 PSI on the front wheel
2.8 Bar / 41 PSI on the rear wheel

If i visit the Bridgestone website and enter the 2019 model iT gives me the A41 tyres with:
2.5 Bar / 36 PSI on the front wheel
2.8 Bar / 41 PSI on the rear wheel

The Dunlop website doesnt have a 2019 model.
The Michelin website the 2019 model is still  on 17 wheels.
The Metzeler website has no tyres for a 2019 model.
So there is no data from these manufacturers.

Personally i also have set my tyrepressure to 36 and 41 PSI.
But i will try the 29 PSI to see what happens.

Many thanks for your answers
36 PSI seems too high for the front wheel ?
I think I will follow the recommendations of the manual:
29 and 41 PSI

I've been running the 29/41 and it seems fine to me.  Maybe a to hard for a dirt road but on pavement I've worn off my chicken strips. 
Woot. woot.

Set my tyre pressure to 29/41 last week and did 500km, no problems.
Bike handles really good with this setting.

-pro, the front tyre heats up equally to the rear tyre, this was not the case when i ran it on 36 psi.

-con, the front tyre reacts more to irregularities like grooves and markings.

just had the first service on mine, I was given a brief lecture on tyre pressures. The service sheet says they put in 32 for the front, 36 for the rear.
I'd like to know why they didn't follow the service manual.

I think that would be a good question for the dealer to answer
