K1300GT and Gerbing ++
I'm thinking about upgrading to a 1300GT, I currently own a 1200GT 08, and wants to add a few things (Zumo 660, Autocom, Ipod and Gerbing) powered from the bike.My dealer is hesitant to allow installing of Gerbing because it draws to much power.He says the maximum they are allowed to pull from the bike is 10 amps and my gear is close to 15 (his calculaton). A quick search reveals that quite a few people use Gerbing equipment and some also have much more farkles(?) than I do, apparently without any problems. Of course I do not want to have the battery drained because of this.
Still, I don't want to give up on this yet. What I'm hoping for with this post is to get some arguments that will help me convince the dealer that this is possible. Maybe even some examples of what electrical gadgets you are using without draining the battery. Also any suggestions how to install this the best way will be greatly appreciated. I'm not a technical person, so a brief explanation will be sufficient. If I need more details I will ask. I would prefer the power to die when the ignition is turned off.
English is my second language so if my writing confuses more than it explains, please let me know what is confusing and I will try to clarify.
Thanks in advance.
