Hello All,

I have the following standard and additional electric using equipment and I am curious if there is a thumbs up rule to how much we can drain on the dynamo?

standard front lights, indicators (probably negligible), 1x 55 W Hella Micro De (this is a blinker/illegal but a must in heavy istanbul traffic, it blinks just like an emergency beakon or like those on jets), 2x Hella Micro DE 55Wx2 fog fog spot lights....

I am considering heat grips...but thats where I paused for second opinion.

IDEAS...RECOMMENDATIONS???

Here's what I've done.

Replace all the tungsten bulbs (indicators, clocks,rear light) with LED bulbs to save a few watts.

It works.

really? 2 x 55 wats+ head lights+ heat grips will not be a rarety 4 me in long high speed rides...


I have not done the math yet but I am concerned the strain on the rect/dynamo will be considerable enough to make a difference by changing the bulbs on ears and rear...

but will follow thru with ur advise
