Meat is correct.
When I broke my subframe and talked to Yamaha about all this the rep kept stating a “max of 10lbs” over the weight of the box. He got a little po’d at me because I kept asking him that at that time the Yamaha 50l box (now made by Shad) was at 25lbs and my Shad 50l was at 15lbs and the Givi was somewhat less than that, so I asked if I was ok to 20lbs since my Shad is 10lbs lighter than the oe Yamaha. He never varied from his canned answer just got po’d and started loudly exclaiming 10lbs Max. I enjoyed aggravating him ! Kind of a payback for the p-poor broken subframe.
Then when I installed the Yamaha heavy aluminum rack I noticed that they have 11lbs max cast into it. Part of me wanted to call the Yamaha rep back and aggravate him some more as the whole subframe deal is such a poor design that I feel they should be called on it at every chance,,,, they should be embarrassed instead of defensive of it, it’s a terrible design that just sucks at best.
Off the soapbox now,,, it is as uncle meat states that the weight-is over the added box weight. Yamaha should be embarrassed by the fact that we are even having this discussion though.
