I’m sure I’ve asked this before but a search doesn’t reveal anything?
what tyre pressures are you guys using front and rear (standard size tyres)

I'll have to look! Too many bikes, so each tire has a silver marker denoting appropriate pressure for that tire.

I've learned over the years to question everything that I find on the internet because since Youtube, and Facebook etc. anyone can post anything and it's the "Gospel according to Moses"
I'm sure Ted has reasons for his tire pressure settings and I respect that. For me, I always want to go back to an engineered spec and in the case of these KZ1300's the spec for tire pressure would be found in the Owner's Manual so.......
On page 88 of the Owner's Manual
 

That's what Kawasaki called for.

There's also a "Tire and Load Data" label attached to the bottom of the seat pan. A reproduction label is available from FleeBay.com  Reproduction Tire and Load Data label  but looking at the pressures on this label I "suspect" that this is a reproduction of the ZN1300 Voyager label since the pressures noted on the label are slightly higher than the pressures quoted in the Owner's Manual for the 1979 KZ1300.
Note on the label, the rear tire spec'd is a MU90-16 so 16" diameter rear tire is for the Voyager.
