Could any techies out there tell me how many watts the Triumph America altenator produces from idle to 60mph. I have an accessory connection for my phone and power pack on long trips and its works fine but it would be nice to know if I can include heated grips, etc.
Any feedback much appreciated,

Googled it around 330/360 watts at highway speeds.
I've run extra lighting , 2x35w hid spots.
No problem for several years. Just have to watch out if you are in slow traffic running those thermal grips ~30w each ?

Thanks capt, I replaced the battery earlier this year and getting 12.9v. The altenator gives me 13.1v at idle and 14.2v above 40mph. Cheers

Capt, just found this on the Haynes manual for the America EFI, page 8.1,
24 Amp @ 2,000 RPM
26 Amp @ 4,000 RPM
Multiplied by 12V that's 288 and 312 Watts.
Hope this is useful to someone.
