Quick sw motech rear rack question

I just put on the rear rack (no trunk yet). The sticker says 11 lbs max weight limit. I imagine that some larger trunks weigh 5 lbs themselves.

How much weight have you guys put on the rear rack?

I've had about 50lbs in my Shad 40 I think the rack can handle the weight fine the problem comes when your stopped and there is a big weight way up high you have to control.

Dang, just placed an order for the same rack. I would think it could support more weight than 11 lbs. I plan on a Givi Topcase V46 and mostly garment type cargo (not so heavy).
