Electrical Power output?

How much electricity does the KLR produce? I have a pair of Oxford heated grips and just picked up some LED fog lights today and just wondering if it's to much juice for the bike to run. I have a feeling with the LeD lights they won't draw much but at the same point I'm not sure they will put out alot of light either so I may upgrade them with a regular 55 watt light down the road

Thoughts?


Cheers, Nick

The general consensus seems to be that the Gen 2s have about 100 watts available on low beam. I have a voltage monitor on my 08 and run grip heaters and a heated liner. The monitor will trip if I switch in the high beam.

I'm running HID and LED everywhere, but at speed I can run high beam, heated grips, heated vest, heated gloves, and I've noticed no problem, bike still starts just fine every time.

NB: my vest and gloves are Exo2, so they don't draw as much power, but still plenty of draw.
