what PSI is everyone running in their Stock size tires on the C?

the frame sticker recommends 36 and while that does provide a a nice ride and is sufficient for my commuting ride. When hitting the backroads and doing any hard cornering there always felt like i had too much sidewall flex like the tires were low on air or flat. The last week or so I have bumped the pressure up to 40 pounds and I can't even explain how much happier I am with it, the feedback from the contact patch of the tire to my brain is SOOOOOOOOOOO much more exact. I dont feel the sidewalls flexing like they were and the bike feels more stable when leaned over.

anyone else had to bump their air pressure up to get the ride they like?

A local dealer recomended to me to add 6lbs over for better wear and performance...thats what I do.
I wonder if Dyna beads will add to that feel you describe?

I found that at 36 my tires started cuping, and the left side of the back tire was wearing very quickly
