I run a heated vest liner with the heated grips and LED running lights. I have not monitored the voltages when all that is running, but my lights have not dimmed.

I'm not sure how many amps the stator puts out.

I've been able to run BOTH the Tourmaster jacket-liner and pants-liner at the same time.

perfect. I probably would be running the two jackets and I am freeing up some wattage switching to 35w HID as well. also swapping all lights to LED.

I believe the stator is good for about 330 watts.

My heated jacket and gloves gives me a few extra months a year of good riding time. Wouldn't be without them...
