VN1600b Vulcan 1600 Mean Streak Suspension Settings

Hey guys, just got a 2007 Mean Streak the other day and trying to dial in the rear suspension. Read through the manual, and it's kinda vague. I'm 170 lbs and occasionally ride with a passenger (90 lbs). Damper is set to III. However, what should the air pressure be set to? Manual just says atmospheric for 150 lb rider is 43 psi. The chart just has arrows with no numbers or starting points for general conditions. Anyone have at least a ballpark psi I can start from based off these weights? Thanks!

This is personal opinion, but for those interested: 170 lb rider suspension settings- Damper set on II at 30 psi (front/rear tires at 36 psi cold) will give you a slightly stiff ride. It also raised the seat height a little bit. Didn't have a tape measure to check the change.
