how Heavy is too heavy?

Hey i got an 06 ninja 250 and im wondering what u guys think about heavy passengers? Im 6'3 170 lbs and im a little stuffed but what do u think about big people as passengers? Ive taking short trips with my brother to the store and hes also 170 and u really feel the bike dying so what do u think is like the max weight the bike could handle? Obviosly i want more practice with light passengers before i take my big friends but this girl has been talking about it for so long and i dont no how to say ur too fat.

Max weight on the bike is 300 something don't remember but you should be fine at 170. Its your height that concerns me as a comfort factor. Go sit on one see if ya like it. Your weight is fine though.

i have a 2009, i take my gf on it often, she's prolly 120-125 and i'm 160-165, bike seems fine, just don't expect it to top out at the same speed, and expect it to rev higher at the same speeds. the bike also gets a lot hotter too because of the higher rpms
