My, new to me, bike came equipped with wiring for a GPS (now running my Zumo 550 which is rated at a 15 watt max) and Clearwater Darla Aux. Lights (total of 48 watts). It came with a Centech AP-2 dual fuse panel. I believe the GPS and Aux. lights run into this panel. Also one of the three onboard sockets (rear right) is also wired into the fuse panel for some reason. I am aware this bike has an electronic fuse system which I believe temporarily disconnects power to an overloaded circuit and then somehow reboots in a manner that I'm I don't understand). The onboard sockets are rated at a max of 10 amps in total. I have a Gerbing's dual controller and am looking to power the following:
Jacket at 7.4 amps
Gloves at 2.2 amps and
Pants at 4.5 amps
When I plug the controller into the front socket and attempt to power my Jacket and Gloves I will overload the circuit which I don't understand since the amps of the Jacket and Gloves together at 9.6 should be under the rating of 10 amps for the socket system. I pretty sure that once the Jacket alone caused an overload. I would like to run all three at the same time but that is currently not possible.
Anyone have any thoughts as to what's going on?
Is a simple solution to just wire the controller directly to to Centech fuse panel or will I be creating new problems? Maybe directly to the battery? I thought I'd enlist aid here rather then setting my bike on fire.
Thanks for any responses.
