Mofset R/R for 2004 Wee ?
I understand that the '04 stator has about 50 W less output (forgive me if that is an incorrect electrical term) than later models.
I am installing DDM HID 35 W x 2 to save some juice (thanks GW et al for that advice) and want to run Oxfords grips (4 amps), heated jacket liner (6 amps), Zumo w XM (< 2 amps) , Starcom1 Advance (? 2 amps), a cell phone charger at times. Maybe heated boot inserts on occaision (don't knock'em till you've ridden 900 miles with sub 40 weather for the last 300)
I don't know how much power needs to be left to run the bike and charge the battery. I am thinking this is getting close- and a stator running full out out would not be best, so charging at lower RPM may be helpfull?
I guess my question is: should I wait and see how it runs (I do have a charging guage to monitor), or do I add the Mofset (I do some back country trips 100's of miles from stuff)?
I am MOSTconcerned about avoiding long term problems
