Dunlop say, http://www.dunlopmotorcycletires.com/care/faq/

"What inflation pressure should I use?

Maintain tire inflation and load in accordance with your motorcycle owner’s manual, tire information placard and restrictions molded into the tire sidewall. The pressure noted on the sidewall of the tire is a maximum for that tire and may not match the recommended pressure for your motorcycle. So always follow the tire manufacturer’s or motorcycle manufacturer’s inflation pressure recommendation.

All pressures should be set cold—that is, before the bike is ridden."

That's clear enough.  But many here seem to know better. Not me though.

Yes sure is. That is why if you read the thread I referenced the manufacturer recommended different pressures to BMW. If you like tyre cupping crack on
