I bought these because I want to get more life out of my tires. I don't really do any aggressive riding and I currently have my tire pressure at 36/42. Should I adjust my pressure to get the most out of these tires or are they good where they are at? I'm mostly commuting back and forth to work right now. Thanks in advance for the input guys.

Max pressure for most motorcycle tires is 42psi, for maximum load carrying capability. This info is printed on the side of every moto and auto tire. I only recommend 40-42psi if you have a very heavy motorcycle or frequently carry a 220 pound significant other.

For most middle weight sportbikes applications you don't need to and should not run max pressure. I usually recommend 34psi front and 36psi rear.

Can't disagree much with a guy who's name is "supertireguy" haha! Actually I agree with him anyway, 34/36 should get you plenty of life out of those bad boys, and if you don't do any aggressive riding, there's no need to go any lower.
