Some heated motorcycle gear is offered in high-Watt or low-Watt versions. For example, heated jacket liners from FirstGear, available now at Motorcycle Superstore, are offered in either 65 Watt or 90 Watt versions. Lower Watt versions are a better choice for motorcycles that don’t have high output alternators. Some motorcycles have very strong charging systems, especially the bigger touring and sport touring models, but you still need to make sure yours can handle the extra electrical load.
Before buying any heated motorcycle gear, including heated grips, always check to see how much electricity it will consume. It is very important to appreciate that your motorcycle’s electrical system has limited capability. If you run multiple types of heated motorcycle gear all at once, especially on the hottest settings, you’ll likely end up with a drained battery, dull lights, and an unhappy riding experience. It’s a good idea to own a to keep your battery topped off if your charging system or battery is somewhat borderline at keeping up with all the extras.
