My alternator solution.......

....on my 2004 V-Strom 650, I installed the Eastern Beaver kit that allows me to flip a switch and cut off one headlight.

I installed an LED tail light.

I run a headlight modulator, so HID is not an option.

I have OEM heated grips. I have a full Gerbings Microwire heated kit, Gloves, Jacket, Pants, and Socks. I have the dual heat controller.

It works.

I can run the entire heated kit with zero problems.

I have a Deka AGM battery.

Just do it.

It's more fun riding a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow.

Thanks - I installed the HID headlights and a brake light cutout relay for my heated gear - if I still have draw issues I'll install LED brake/tail/turn lights.
