*Full disclosure, not my on KLR -- can't run heated gear AND headlight until I rewire the poor dear.
I'm running a Britannia HID fairing (35 watts low beam, 70 high), and an LED tail lamp on my '07, and can ride long distances with my 90 watt jacket liner cranked pretty far into the hot zone. It's a balancing act when the high beam is on, but it works. Mount a voltage meter and keep an eye on it. For all the crap that is thrown around about the KLR, it's a competent machine.
