Hey guys,

I tried to search for this but could not find it in previous threads: whats the weight limit on this bike? I weigh 260 6'2" and my better half weighs 160 5'10".
Hopefully both of can ride :eek:

Nazhat,

I too am a heavy guy 270 5'11", I think i remember seeing something in the owners manual limit was around 380 or so. I'll double check tonight.

Yepper I was in the ballpark, page 28 of the manual, Maximum load 397lbs. I'm not sure how far we could push the limits and still have a nice handling bike.

I weigh in at 290lbs and my wife is 150lbs and we have ridden together a few times and had no problems. Obviously slow down a little and have extra room for breaking.

According to MCN the GVWR is 851 lbs (386 kg), the bike weighs 452 (205 kg) wet, so that leaves you with 399 lbs (181 kg) of carrying capacity. Don't forget to crank the pre-load to keep some suspension travel available.
