Maximum Tongue Weight

I'm thinking of getting a motorcycle carrier for the receiver of the FR3 30DS. I'm just curious of how much weight I can carry there. My motorcycle is about 350 lbs but I don't want to damage the rear frame. Any ideas?

The receiver on my 30DS is a Reese class 3 hitch with a 5000 pound towing capacity and a 500 pound tongue weight.

that 500 pound figure is calculated with a ball about 10" from the end of reciever. A reciever extension adds a foot but reduces to 350 pounds. The carrier MFG should be able to tell you how much hitch you need. Other wise just modify for more strength.
