I'd say that Yamaha's recommended pressures are about what I would suggest for the Golden Boy and stock rear tire, somewhere between 18 and 20 psi.
Who has so advice on street air pressures on the Golden Boy? What about the Stock Rear?

Now Hidden Content on my 2nd TW - 2002 TW200 33k miles - 130 main 34 pilot - 244 Golden Boy Front - 34 BS rear - ATV Bar - New Rally Perches, Master Cylinder, and levers. This one may take a bit to whip into shape but we'll get there!
We run the recommended 18psi in our 4.60-18 244 Goldenboy on the front - works well enough for asphalt-to-gravel-to-asphalt roads we generally ride.
I'm thinking we my replace the front Goldenboy with the similar IRC GP-1 at the next tire change.

I just had a new 241 installed and I got 20psi..I think the rear I put 22...not bein a skinny guy
The Golden Boy is so stiff that little deviations in air pressure are unnoticeable to me. 18 seems good, but your weight, gear and temperature may require adjustments.
I have a Heidenau K60 on the front of my TW. I tried 18 psi and the knobs were wearing down at an angle. I up it to 30 psi and try to use the back brake a little more and the knobs are now wearing down flat, or close to it. 98% of my riding is asphalt.
