Heidenau K60 Load Rating

I'm looking at picking a pair of Heidi's up but the 21" 90/90 K60 front on Revzilla is only rated 54H(467lbs). My 990 weighs that much without me on it. What am I missing? Educate me please.

Unless you're going to be riding a continual stoppie you can cut the weight in half (two wheels).

The weight of your bike doesn't rest just on your front tire, 467lbs for roughly a 30-40% of the total weight of the bike is a lot. The same rear K60 is rated at 70, ie 738 lbs, so if you keep the total weight under 467+738=1,205 lbs you'll be fine
Get it and don't worry about it.

I assumed that was the case it just seemed that the 21 had such a low rating compared to the other fronts.
