How much extra electric power?

Recommended Posts

I just got a a 06 XR650L and would like to add heated grips and GPS to the bike for now. How much spare power does the bike have?

You should have enough power to run the grips and a gps. I think the stock output is 180 to 185watts rings a bell.

185 watts is spec'd, not sure what the standard 'load' is ... guess if someone was ambitious they could put an ammeter on it and see what she pulls just sitting there running. Figure 55 watts for the headlight + 8 for the taillight and X for the ignition system. I think it's fair to say you've got near 100 watts to spare, maybe around 50 watts at idle
