Anyone remove the parking lights on the Speed Trip? I have been using my 07 thru the last two winters and have had zerro issues using a heated jacket and gloves so far.
I was just wondering if I removed the two small bulbs it would aid my alternator cope with the extra elect. load that I am pulling.
Only reason I believe they are even on these British bikes, is they are required in the UK.

Maybe I'm missing something but... How is unplugging the parking lights going to help Alt output??? Those lights only draw power when turned on, and on my Triumphs they don't turn on when the engine is running.
