Wazz-up?

I'm beginning to plug in all sorts of gadgets, ie, Autocom, Cell phone charger, GPS, and now heated socks and gloves.

If I remember correctly, (haven't read owners manual in a while) the 02 ST alternator is a 90 amp alternator...or is it 60??? I keep getting my 6&9's mixed up :wink:

Anybody know how many amps are required to operate the bike? From this I can begin deducting the load of all my peripherials and stay within appropriate load limits.

Thanks in advance.

Per my service manual...

The alternator is rated 35 Amp. It is wired directly to the fuse panel.

The '06 allows 10 amp for owner installed stuff.

3 H7's are 165 Watts or 12.5 Amp at 13.2 Volt.
That leaves 12.5 Amp average draw for the ECU, Ignition, Injectors and Fan.

The battery connects directly to the starter solenoid but through a 30 Amp fuse to the rest of the system.

There, that's better.

In any event 60 and 90 amp are car alternator figures.

The heated gloves and socks are the only thing you have added that draws current of any significance.

CLB,

I read somewhere that (at least with the 02-04 model ST's) Triumph fitted an oversized alternator for more touring minded folks.

You got me questioning now. I'll have to dig a little deeper and find that statement.

Thanks

And another thing...

10 Amp of accessory draw is 132 Watt or 0.18 HP.
Turn your socks off to pass. :-D
