That's the load rating for one tire.
Assuming it is a rear tire, the front tire will have a slightly lower load rating, perhaps 600 pounds. You've got a total capacity of 1240 pounds.
My bike has a weight distribution, unloaded of 55/45. Lets say that, loaded, yours is 65/35.
Rear .65 * (420+260) = 442 pounds.
Front .35 * (420+260) = 238 pounds
The key here is how much you load onto the back, but there's such a large margin (200 pounds) that you're good to go.
p.s., My K761s are rated at 520 and 507. My bike weighs 425. My gear and I weigh in at about 260. No problem with tires.
