ZX-14 Weight Capacity?

Does anyone know how much weight a ZX-14 can handle including a passenger? I currently ride a ZX-6 and am thinking of either getting a Suzuki M109 as a second bike or upgrading to the ZX-14. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

I don't know the answer- but here is a link to the service manual- it might have it listed under specs or...?

Sorry- I don't have time right now to look further.

Maximum load is 397# according to my manual with OEM tires but it depends more on your tire and tire pressure. If there are different tires on your bike, check the load rating.

Unless your girlfriend looks like this, you should be good.

My rule of thumb is never date a chick that weighs more than your bike.



Well, I guess I should also say that you should be good unless you look like this too.

crotchety,

That link seems broken. Does anyone else have a link to the ZX14 manual or service manual?
