Hi guys,
I searched everywhere, but I couldn't find the answer ANYWHERE...
Does anyone know if there are any weight restrictions for a pillion?
I weight 80kg and pillion weights the same.
Thank you in advance.

160kg? That's hardly heavy, you'll be fine.
I'm sure there is a maximum weight the tyres/suspension/chassis can withstand but it would be pretty extreme.
If a person were that heavy then they'd
A) unlikely be a able to mount the pillion seat
B) Would require surgical removal of the motorcycle from their sphincter at journeys end
C) Should probably walk

Thank you for your reply Cainus83.
If someone would weight this much they definitely should take a walk instead of a ride 😂

I just wasn't so much worried about overall weight as I was, that pillion might be too heavy for the tail. I just purchased a 2020 gsx s750 and I really want to take my mum on some nice rides, but I want her to be safe.

You will both be fine.
Gear up, be safe and enjoy the ride.
Best of luck :)
