Question Air Pressure and sealant for Metzler Z6

Hey Fellow K riders.
I just put a new set of Metzler Z6's on my 2004 K12RS. ("C" Rear) My question is, "Those of you who run the Metzler Z6's, what air pressure do you run front and rear?"
Does anyone run Ride-On sealant in them? Pros and Cons?
So far I have about 50 miles of scrub time on the tires. My first impression at 36psi front and 42psi rear is they seam a littler stiffer and harder than the stock Z4's. No serious lean ins or hard acceleration as yet.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

36F/40R is what I use when not traveling some distance, as I don't have the side cases on and the tail bag has just the bare necessities), otherwise 38F/42R.

No sealant for me. If you do use a sealant, be sure to tell the people changing the tire that it's got lots of goo inside. They may mumble about it, but it's nothing like the screams and curses when they find it unexpectedly.

Based on how long your tires wear (should last about as long as the Z4's), check the wear indicator closest to the center. They have a tendency to sneak to the worn-out state quite unexpectedly.
