I run 25 front and 20 rear with the K60's and 25 front with the TKC 80.

Have been through plenty of nasty rock gardens and never bent a wheel. (other than small dents and dings, none of the huge bends that seems like alot of people post)

I ran lower on the front a few times, but hitting rocks a high speed felt like it would "jar" the bike a bit, running 25 lbs helped a bit (in my head anyway!!!)

It is noticeable better traction on the front running at 25 vs 36 though. And the street feels lots better running 36 instead of 25.

So yea it is typical to change pressure depending on where you are riding.
