I have two rigid D2's on the bike, run a small mp3 player, gps and was wondering if the alternator output has enough left in watts or amps to run heated gear?

Would people suggest I use the canbus or direct to batt. like the sae I use for the mp3?

I'm not sure how much my GS can handle without stressing the system or draining the batt. Can I run the D2's full time, I've been hesitant to do so with the gps and mp3 running

Thanks

Your lights probably consume around 40 watts, the other stuff you mention, very little. Yes you can run heated gear but not off the can bus. Provide a direct to battery connection. You should have around 400 watts available.
