I have a fully heated suit and passing lamps that get used regularly at the beginning and end of the riding season and have never had a problem.
SLK   I ride a Yamaha Star  Motorcycle or I ride nothing at all.

Perhaps just start with an electric cup.  Just the things that absolutely can't freeze.  Should not draw more than an amp.  If it does then that is decidedly cause for concern.

I took a ride up a mountain pass yesterday and took the opportunity to use my new heated chaps.  I have a Synergy jacket and gloves as well (left the gloves out on this ride).  The heated clothing would only stay "lit" for a few minutes at a time.  I have Yamaha Driving lights and I turned those off, then the sysem worked great.  Based on earlier math, examples and people much brighter than me, I shouldn't have had a problem.  I just replaced my battery this August so don't think this is an issue. The bike is a 2008 and the only other electrical mod is an LED turn signal light bar under the stock stop light.

Jacket - 76W/6.3A
Chaps - 43W/3.5A
Gloves - 24W/2.7A
Lamps - 70W (based on two 35W halogen bulbs)

The Synergy pigtail is hooked directly to the battery with a 15A inline fuse so is similar to earlier quoted work.....any thoughts?

I bought a 12v outlet from Autozone and wired it into the aux power circuit (in headlight bucket).  Stuck it to the front of the trip-tree behind window.  Works great for phone, GPS, etc,.

If it helps at all - I installed this Formotion accessory plug and have been using it for cell phone and gps charging. Wired directly to battery with a 15 amp fuse. Kinda pricey at about $50! :o I only bought it cause it was shiney! ;D

Check page 4-18 of your owners manual under Auxiliary DC connector

The earlier parts of this write up are perfect!  Mani's information is just what I've been concerned with.  I moved to Utah last year and for the first time since I got my raider I have lost months of riding time due to the cold (and a deployment during the winter didn't help).  Froze my ass off heading to Vegas a couple weeks ago...  Now I know what I have to get before the cold weather gets in next year!
