25 psi would be the maximum on the stock shocks for your road king. I usually myself run about 17 psi in the rear shocks with a passenger.

Use this table as a starting point in determining suitable rear air suspension pressures. Do not exceed

maximum GVWR when loading vehicle and do not pressurize system in excess of 50 psi (345 kPa) for

FLHRS, FLHX models and 35 psi (241 kPa) for all others. Excessive load weight and/or air suspension

pressure can adversely affect handling and lead to loss of vehicle control, which could result in loss of life

How much air (p.s.i.) should there be in the front and back shocks


Hi.

Depends on what you want to get. In theory the fork can be between 0 and 43 psi. In practice if you put 40 psi it will be completely stiff and seals may start leaking.

In practice the front take 0 to 12 psi, and rear shock from 7 to 21 psi.

If you need street performance put more pressure. Settings for comfort in long travels will require lower pressure.

Here tables from service manual:

FRONT

ginko_107.jpg

REAR:

Rear shock absorber air pressure can vary from 0.5 kg/cm2 (7 psi) to 1.5 kg/cm2 (21 psi) as the road conditions become more severe or the load increases.

For the front here below the procedure from service manual. I suggest staying far from the 43 psi limit suggested if you do not want to break the seals.

8. Make sure the front wheel is off the ground and inflate the forks to 0-0.4 kg/cm2 (0-6 psi). Do not use compressed air; use only a small hand-operated air pump.
CAUTION
Never exceed an air pressure of 43 psi (3.0 kg/cm2) as damage may occur to internal components of the fork assembly.

Air in rear shocks


Depending on your weight and if you carry a passenger as to the air pressure. I normally run about 14 but 24 if riding 2 up.
Recommended pressures:
up to 150 lbs- 0
each addition 25 rider pounds > 150 lbs add 1.0 lbs
each additional passenger pounds > 150 lbs add 1.5 lbs
each additional 10 lbs of laggage add 3.0 lbs
Max Pressure 35 psi
