Stator output

I am wondering if I ride my 1100 with the heated jacket and gloves, and other electric items.
What happens if there is not enough stator output? I know the battery gets drawn down but does the bike quit running?

If it draws it down enough it will quit, not sure but probably below 9 or 10 volts.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Your electrical system voltage goes way down.

It can if a too large electrical load is constant. You also run the risk of a chronically undercharged battery which will affect starting ability and battery life.

If you like cruising at low RPM's then I think it would.

I wouldn't think just the gloves would be a problem, but a jacket, probably/maybe.

Why don't you try it out in the driveway, RPM's don't lie when it comes to alternator output, in neutral or in gear.

Volt meters are easy these days, Battery Tender makes a great digital plug in, cheap.

And if it's just borderline, drive around in a lower gear than you normally would.

Who the hell wants to go real fast in the cold anyway?







For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on classicgoldwings.com in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."
