We like to add electrical accessories to our motorcycles, such as a GPS, auxiliary lights, a cell phone charger, and heated gear. It’s important not to overload the bike’s electrical capacity. In this video I show how to measure the power requirements of several motorcycle accessories so you can avoid damage to your bike’s electrical system.
🔴 Auxiliary Lights
This is the brand of these lights that I bought. There are several other brands of these lights. Some of them include the wiring harness.
🔴 Gerbing Heated Jacket
There are a number of sizes and styles available.
🔴 Garmin Zumo 595
🔴 Laundry Soap/Softener/Static Control
🔴 Packing Cubes
🔴 Oil Filter
This brand of oil filter is available with a 17mm nut for easy removal
🔴 Wiring Connectors
The best way to tap into wiring – these connectors do the least damage to the wires and can be removed easily. Order the size needed for the wire you are tapping into.

These modules will supply enough power to charge tablets and large phones. The Lightningfast item has a QualCom 3.0 port for phones equipped to handle QC3 fast charging.
