Folks,

I have a 2007 GT1000 (no mods relevant) and would like to purchase some heated gloves and a jacket liner. Does anyone know how much wattage the bike has available for such accessories?

Thanks!

I dont know the exact numbers. but being that the R/R melts due to getting too much voltage, I would say it's plenty to power a small village.

You have a 520W alternator. It takes about 150 to 200 W to run the bike. There's about 300 more watts to play with.

That said: I made a jacket liner that is 140 Watts. I had 110W aux lights. Heated Grips 30W. Add in another 55W for high beam. All this stuff would run simultaneusly on my 1998 ST2, which was a 420W alternator. Make sure all your connections are clean and tight (battery, gnd., RRgnd.) and you should be OK.

Just don't expect much from it in town at an idle. You need to be riding it (3000rpm and up) to get decent wattage/voltage out of the alternator.
