Smile Shock gas pressure?

Finally got round to doing a few jobs on my speed triple 900,got my shock off so I can take it to work to get re-gassed but does anyone know what type of pressure I should be aiming for?
Once that's done I can get the bike on a dyno to check power/fuel ratio.

You must have an aftermarket rear shock with a gas reservoir? The shock manufacturer should be able to help. As a point of reference, my DRZ400 rear shock (KYB I think) requires 128 psi.
