Well the Run/Meet/Bash season is upon us here in the UK and thoughts are turning now to getting out there again. Due to distances and convenience camping out overnight is necessary but.... the first cup of coffee in the morning is a must.
1) Will the battery take (and boil) a 12v 170w 15amp kettle?
2) If so would it be better to run the bike whilst boiling (would the alternator take this) or not?
Views would be appreciated!
WTF DUDE ARE YOU ON THE WRONG WEB SITE, check and make sure, cause the last time I looked no one around here talked about riding any mobile generators, take a hard look at the size of the battery and look in MOM at the power specs.
1.) Run: yes: for about 1 minute, but you better have a good set of jumper cables and be ready to buy another battery soon, around 145 US Dollars.
2.) Running the bike, Maybe, but your neighbors are going to be somewhat disturbed by the noise, and I cannot Imagen how you would strap the pot to the bike while running at 3000 Rpm, around 40MPH in third.
Seriously: you stated you were camping out, packing gear, go to an army surplus store, you have those?, all army's use small portable stoves that will do the job fine and lots of campers use them. No open flame laws, how does anybody camp without a fire? That there is just wrong.
If you feel compelled to do this please post back and let us know, so I can file ABUSE charges through the international red cross.

Please get a reality check here, it's a MOTORCYCLE and not built to power appliances.
Whew now that got my blood pumping so early in the morning.
