My questions is; has anyone on here installed and run, driving or foglights? Any Problems? Any suggestions? Thanks.
We have an '11 G650GS and plugged in a heated jacket which uses 78 watts, coupled with a pair of gloves consuming 24 watts for the pair. The G650 wouldn't quite pull this load and discharged the battery.
