Default Accessories / Electrical System Capability

Anyone know how much power in electrical accessories could be safely added before the electrical system starts struggling to charge the battery?
I'm wanting to get some higher powered lighting and heated gear which would add up to about 100W of additional power draw.

Hi matey, since you've not had a reply, depends on what you need , the bike kicks out roughly 400w @ 5000rpm , but then you've got to minus anything you already have attached to the bike (bulbs, other electrical mounts) if your adding heated grips you want to make sure that it's on a circuit that will switch off with the ignition, if your commute is mostly motorway that's OK , but if city battery will drain more

I figure stock should be 165 for all 3 headlights, maybe 10W for all the little things in the dash and tail lights, and a bit for the fuel injection, maybe 100W? That should still leave 125W of the 400 for accessories.

Think your talking 40 to 50 watts (4 amp) for the heated grips so plenty left, its actually higher than 400 watts but just to be on the safe side
