swanny, where does it state this 'max load 90kg' ?

Assuming it's a dual seat then no way can you find two adults light enough to sit on it together!

Usually there is a maximum fully loaded weight for the bike which includes all loaded bags, top-boxes, racks as well as full fuel tank AND fully kitted out rider and pillion. It's a legal limit and is often stamped on the frame registration plate under the seat or near the head-stock.

Single seater mopeds or 50cc 'motorcycles' might be limited though.

As Cov_AL asked, what bike do you have?

B-in-F

Think again .. we could just about get in to that limit. If the bike is UK plated and a moped, as the plate was badly designed (which I doubt its a UK bike), the weight applied to the maximum design wieght of the bike & not the payload but assuming Yamaha had to apply the same data to the plate in other countries perhaps this refers to its overall weight

hmm would this be an late 80's/early 90's FZR if so ignore the plate it was a Japanise typo.. the machine will carry a payload (riders & luggage) greater than 90 kilo, but you may find a warning on a later bike which relates to the luggage weight so I guess just ignore it .. unless you have an elephant on the back !!!

Just to re-inforce JimR's last post:

My bike has a standard dry weight of 205kg, no rider but oil and full fuel included.

Maximum load is 397kg. That's 192kg of additional load; rider/pillion, full kit, top-box, rack and panniers (and what you put in them!). Effectively DOUBLE the standard weight of the bike.

If you've made changes to the bike like exhausts, centre-stand etc. then the basic dry weight will change giving you more (or less!) load that you can carry.

There aren't too many weight load 'checks' made to motorcycles because of the limited ways of hanging things on the bike. But you risk breaking the Law if you exceed the recommendations.

There, you can sleep easier tonight.

Hi steve,

he must have had a good poo :D but I still maintain that the weight mentioned will be the accessory weight rather than the total M.A.M !!!
