    Hi, does anybody knows the roof weight limit for a CU1 (2.0 i-VTEC, 4 doors)?
    The manual says: check with your dealer. But even the work shop manual (MaRIS) does not say anything?!

    Asking because I will carry this on the roof:
    Honda original roof rack + bicycle rack for one bike (Honda original) + Thule Ocean 200 (15 kg) + Cube mountainbike (13 kg) + luggage....

    Mostly a guess but I've stood on top of mine and was fine haha plus when u have roof bars the weight is going onto the actually chassis of the car not just the roof panel haha

    If anybody's looking for the correct information, this is it (info found with original Honda roof rack):
    "Expand your car's carrying capacity with a strong, secure roof rack. Including 4 locks. Maximum load capacity: 50 kg (max 55 kg on roof). "
    => Honda original roof rack is 5 kg, means 50kg can be put on top of that.
    In my personal case: 50 minus 15 (Thule box) minus 4 (bicycle rack) minus 13 (Cube bicycle) = 18 kg left to put in the box. Not much for a 450 liter box....
