Low load capacity?

While reading about the CB1100 I never came across a reason as to why this bike has a smaller loading carrying capacity than my XMoto.

The tires have a combine load capacity of 1190 pounds. So, what is the weak link that limits the CB?

Someone mentioned using hot water a while back. It sounded like it worked great.

I'm guessing suspension - spring rates and travel

It does work great. Soak a rag in very hot water and just hold it against the sticker for a few seconds, peels off easy as.
Its the way I always remove stickers, far safer than using a heat gun.

Honda is somewhat notorious for low GVWR's that result in relatively low useful load capacities - there used to be a model of the GoldWing that by the book could only carry 417-lbs including fuel. Conversely, BMW is known for the opposite. I don't think this means the Honda is less strong or can carry less - just that Honda has made a decision to be more conservative here.... perhaps their lawyers are louder. And Honda probably doesn't feel the CB1100 is likely to be a bike that will see loaded-touring duty very often so it is not a priority to give it more weight-carrying capacity.

Very few pay any attention to this stuff. Perhaps they should but they don't.

Thanks Mark, kinda what I thought might be the case. The CB is built like a tank.

Ok so I've seen pics of this bike overseas with a genuine Honda luggage rack/top case. It looks a hell of a lot better than aftermarket or a milk crate. Does anyone know about one in the USA? It's kind of a deal breaker for my purpose.

Even if it's not available in the US just order it from the UK. I used to get parts for my Honda CBF1000 shipped from the UK. Way cheaper than buying from my "local" Honda dealer. Stator fried, $550 from my dealer which is 1 1/2 hours away, $330 shipped to my door from the UK, that's exchange, tax, shipping everything included. David Silver Spares is good to deal with. If you're not in a hurry then regular parcel post through their Royal Mail is cheapest.

Here was my CBF1000 with all the luggage. Kinda the modern day equivalent to the CB1100...

Easier said then done. The problem is often finding a dealer willing to sell accessories and ship overseas. With most Japanese mfgs, it's a technical violation of their dealer agreement.

Well, everyone's in luck, it's possible to order from Japan - at least for the CB1100 anyway. Of course, the luggage rack is actually available here in the states and there are a few aftermarket top-boxes with adapters to fit the oem rack.

If the oem top case is absolutely necessary, it can be ordered from Samurider.com. He can get pretty much any of the oem or aftermarket parts made in Japan, and usually for a better price than a dealer here.

What Gypped said. The best source of non-U.S. dealer OEM parts for the CB1100 is samurider.com

Many of us inmates over on the CB1100 forum have bought parts from Mr. Takashi, who is a very solid, responsive guy. Shipping is usually about as fast as buying in continental U.S., very quick from Japan.

He sells a lot of the OEM Japan and Euro parts for the 1100 along with some official Honda authorized aftermarket accessories and a lot of cool aftermarket stuff available in Japan.

I believe he sells the OEM top box on his website.

Anyone get one yet? I hear the new Deluxe and 2013 are not interchangeable. Any pics?
