heated vest

Postby kybigmac » Wed Nov 04, 2015 8:04 pm



I'm thinking about getting my wife a heated vest and was wondering if the stock Alternator on my 93 GW will run it ok . I don't have any extra lights or other accessories so the vest will be the only extra draw. So just asking for your expert opinions. Thx in advance!

I run a gerbing jacket liner on my stock 1998 goldwing se with no problems. Have also ran another one when my wife went with me on a 150 mile run. I don't think you will have a problem.

If you get her a heated vest, you will soon by buying a heated jacket liner since it has heat in the sleeves and easy wire connections to heated gloves. Save yourself some money and buy the heated jacket liner to start with. Her arms will get cold so it pays to get the jacket liner instead of the vest.

Yes, get the heated jacket liner as it is only a few $ more and is a lot warmer for you wife with just a very small amount of extra current draw! Your bike will handle it, no problem.
