Load Index

(LI)

The load index shows the maximum load of a tyre.

You can find this index of a tyre on the sidewall. The air pressure of a tyre is important for the maximum load as well. This means that you have to increase the inflation pressure up to the maximum pressure stated on the sidewall of the tyre to achieve the maximum load carrying capacity.

Never exceed the accessory restrictions and vehicle load capacity found in the motorcycle owner's manual or the maximum load moulded on the tyre sidewall.
