Tire load rating question

Hi guys,

This is my second post, so please let me know if I'm not following good protocol for posting. I had a question about new tires for my V-star 1100 Classic.

The stock size for rear tire is : 170/80-15
I've read on the forum and found that the max tire size I can go up to without changing anything on the bike would be 200.

And the tires I'm looking at are Pirelli Night Dragons.

My question is about the load rating for the tires. I haven't been able to find any info on what the recommended load rating is for 2005 Vstart 1100 Classic tires. Also, when buying tires, it sometimes doesn't show what the load rating is.

I'm assuming it's important to make sure you get the right load rating for you bike. Is that correct ?

Could someone please help me find the load rating for my bike and let me know if I absolutely need to follow it ?

I weigh about 150lbs and usually ride alone. Occasionally, I have a rider.

Thanks in advance
