heated gear

coming off a 1981 Suzuki GS 450T, which was seriously limited to the amount of heated gear you could use without draining the battery even while running, i was wondering if there are any limitations on the versys?
thanks

Yes, there are limitations. I don't know what they are because I have not looked up the output of the stator and what the stock bike requires.

I do run a GPS, Heated Grips, Heated Vest liner, and LED running lights without issue.
