Default Bike rack question

Hiya everyone

How do I know / find out how much weight the bike rack on the back of our lunar roadstar will take without loading it and it pulling away from the body



Thanks

Our Burstner is fitted with a Fiamma quick bike 4 bike rack, and is rated to 60kg, not sure about the back wall though! It does flex a bit if I pull on the carrier, so always take a bit of the load off it with a webbing ratchet strap from the ladder and roof bars.

It would be inconvenient to leave the bikes, rack and back wall on the motorway.....
