ok thanks I'm a newbie:) It's dumb because when I first got it I asked the honda dealer if I had to do any changes to the bike because of my weight or anything. They said no -__-
For any bike it is a good idea to start at what the manufacturer recommends.

Once you get a bit of experience with the bike, you might like to experiment a bit, and go with what feels right for you, but it is unlikely to be far from the recommendation.

That's an interesting picture:



Maximum weight capacity: 166kg.

I'm pretty sure my one says 140kg. I remember thinking that's not a lot, less than one average American.

Will check it out when I get home.

Wonder what they base them on... different suspension?

I agree that load figures should be different from region to region. For example here in Thailand the bike is set for a rider of 70kg.

That's the average American's lunch. :(

spdkills, to all the naysayers In relation to your post about the max weight capacity, i have a friend who has a 50cc ruckus, and he was able to drag himself( 200 pounds) and his friend (220 pounds) up a steep hill no problem (although it was a little slow). There's no reason our 250's would have any trouble at all carrying 420 pounds up a hill.
