Just some quick info I have compiled
My heated jacket and gloves on high draw 9.2 Amps
Stock headlight at the same time draw 4.8 amps
bringing my voltage down to 12.9v
so I am trying to bring everything under 13-14amps so I am not discharging my battery.
Don't this bike have a 400W stator? 400w / 12V = 33.3 Amp. Maybe your real problem is you stator is going bad?
