Another Boring Wattage Question

I've had this bike a week and LOVE IT! I thought that I've read somewhere on here the alternator output for the '09 @ 5K was 145 W? If anyone could hook me up with that info I'd appreciate it. I've done more Googling with no results than I care to think about. Thanks in advance.

The 05 has a 375 Watt output alternator (26 amps at 14v). The bike uses approx. 200 watts to operate, leaving you roughly 175 watts or 12.5ish amps.

I installed an EB low beam (1 headlight) cut off, which will give you another 55 watts or 4ish amps to play with.

I have verified these numbers using an inductive amp gauge, and have no problem running my various accessories including heated gear.

'08s and later have another 25W for a 400W total @ 5000rpm. My 07 seems to have about 125W to play with though rather than 175W.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

ABS would take some of that wouldn't it? Just curious.

DL1000K8

So what is it, am I a smart*** or a dumb***? Maybe I'm just an ***hole.

Yes, it does. And when activated, it takes a huge amount.
