Suspension Psi Question

I am currently sporting a Rock Shox Pilot XC dialed into around 50 Psi. Is this too high of a pressure for the fork to handle? Should I reduce the load or could it handle more air? Thanks in advance!

According to the manual, 50psi is max for that fork. If you don't have it, the manual is at:

under tech support.
