2012 Triumph America
So chilly weather is here. All the info I've been able to discover says the alternator on my 2012 America is rated at 200 watts at 6,000 rpm. That divided by 12 volts equals 16.6 amps. My heated jacket consumes 6.4 amps at full load. My heated lowers is another 6.4 amps. The fuel injection and the electronics on the bike itself consumes 10 amps (again, what info I can find). SO, I can't ride with both of my electrics running and keep the bike going down the road. Does this sound right? Are there any alternatives? My K bike ('94 K1100LT) produced 700 watts and did it at 2500 rpm and on up.
