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.
