Kawasaki recommends dampening set at 2 and no additional air pressure in the rear shocks for riders up to 150 lbs. You can add air pressure up to 43 PSI as your load increases due to additional weight from riders or luggage, etc. Basically it's a matter of personal preference for both dampening and shock PSI. Do not exceed 71 PSI or you may blow your shocks. Also, be certain to match the PSI in both shocks exactly. I'm sure you already know this, though.
I've got 20 PSI in both shocks because I ride occasionally with my wife on the back, and sometimes with luggage strapped to the rear rack. Haven't noticed any difference when I ride solo, but my wife says the 20 PSI makes it a bit softer when we ride 2 up. I probably should go up to 30 PSI when we take a long ride together.
