Cruiser Lift has a formula on their website that calculates the weight shifted from the front axle. Includes distance from the overhang from the center of the rear axle and the wheelbase of the coach. In my case the calculation showed a less than 200 reduction off a 12,000 axle. This was later confirmed as I weighed the coach after it installed the lift and loaded the bike. The longer the wheelbase, the less weight is shifted off the front. I did end up right at the max 20,000 on the rear axle.
New Goldwing, full of fluids, ready to ride is around 800 lbs depending on model.
