07 650R Ninja

The Owners manual states total maximum load is 25W. Any more and The electrical system could damage or drain battery ? I've been using heated Grips, GPS, and a J+M CB radio, and even a chain oiler. Probably 60+ watts for years w/ no problem on my 07 650R Ninja. I'm ready to install the same Accessories to the Vulcan. Could the Vulcan have a different charging system than my Ninja?

Once you start adding Non LED lights you can use up the 358 watts quick.

LED lighting is the way to go, at least for lighting that is used Most of the time while riding.

IE: like, Brake/tail lights, head lights, driving lights.

Not Turn signals, as they are only on for a very short amount of time while riding, not worth the time or money.

Just use relays or circuit Breakers for high draw items

Thanks for reply.
That's just what I'm doing. Relay/fuse harness to aux loads from switched supply.
