## Motorcycle Weight Limit Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Motorcycle Weight Limit.

MWL = GVWR - BW

Variables:

- MWL is the Motorcycle Weight Limit (lbs)
- GVWR is the gross vehicle weight rating (lbs)
- BW is the bike weight (lbs)

To calculate the motorcycle weight limit, subtract the bike weight from the gross vehicle weight rating.

## How to Calculate Motorcycle Weight Limit?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Motorcycle Weight Limit.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the gross vehicle weight rating (lbs).
- The gross vehicle weight rating (lbs) is given as:: 600.

- Next, determine the bike weight (lbs).
- The bike weight (lbs) is provided as: 300.

- Finally, calculate the Motorcycle Weight Limit using the equation above:

MWL = GVWR – BW

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

MWL = 600 – 300 = 300.00 (lbs)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

gross vehicle weight rating (lbs) = 700

bike weight (lbs) = 250
