So far so good. Rode for an hour and a half no issues. That is the nice part of the dual controller. You can adjust each seperate and dial in your warmth level. If the system stuggles at idle just turn it down.My only suggestion is to make sure that the alternator on the FZ09 has enough power to be able to handle the both the jacket liner and the gloves........wattage wise. I haven't seen any specs on the alternator output yet.
Cycle World published 415W @ 5000 RPM (29.6A). As an anecdotal bit of information, I've personally run heated gloves and jacket on both of my Triumph 1050's that come with a 35A charging system...possible, but not a lot left and sitting in traffic can drain things down. However, the FZ-09 has one less headlight, so it's going to be close. Short answer is...keep an eye on it.My only suggestion is to make sure that the alternator on the FZ09 has enough power to be able to handle the both the jacket liner and the gloves........wattage wise. I haven't seen any specs on the alternator output yet.
Turn signals already changed out to LED's front and back. and 35w HID headlamp. I feel pretty good about the charging issue.The front signals are 'dual duty' and are always illuminated. The rears only illuminate when signaling (or four-way flashing). So by replacing the dual filament bulb with single, you lose the light functionality, but free up some wattage. Depends if you feel the lights are significant from a safety perspective...but FWIW, most bikes don't have running lights (aside from the federally-mandated always on headlight).
Unfortunately, you're in the minority of the country that can do that! I'd estimate half of my riding season is done with electrics on (either grips or gloves/liner). It really opens up November-April...Sorry guys if its cold enough for heated gear I'am in the so cal desert on my dirt bike call me a weather whimp :nike:
