Jumping in with both feet.

So I decided if I am going to go dark might as well go double dark. Went with the Michelin Primacy HP ZP Run Flat and the Bt45. Does 31 lb in the rear and 41 in the front sound like a good place to start? I will be riding 2 up half the time. Somewhere I read that you can get a DS number, where is that?

Better to be silent and thought a fool then to open ones mouth and remove all doubt.

Should be ok but depends on how accurate your tire gauge is or how heavy the load. Many seem to prefer around 28 for the runflat, 41 should be ok for the front. This is with tire cold and ambient air temp about 65-70 degrees. After riding when tires are warm the pressure will go up about 4 to 7 pounds.
