Well it would be draw as much current as the inline fuse would allow it to. I'm not sure what you have in there but 10amp X 12v = 120 watts and 15amp X 12v = 180 watts max. That said the alternator only puts out so many amps so it would depend on how many other gadgets you have running (heated grips, extra lights, etc). I'm sure you'd be good with whatever liner you buy though unless you have a lot of accessories.
What he said. The limiting factor isn't the capacity of the socket but how many "spare" watts the alternator has. My experience tells me that the amount of spare watts is somewhere in excess of 100W and jacket liners usually pull less than that so you should be OK if you're not running other accessories.
Note that this may cause your alternator light in the cluster to glow dimly. Nothing to worry about if it's just glowing dimly though.
If you want to run more than 1xx watts of accessories then it's possible to upgrade from your current (no pun intended) 32 amp alternator to the later 50 amp alternator.
I am looking for a photo of a K-75 with the "T" windscreen on it. The diagrams off MAX-BMW Parts and REALOEM just aren't enough to put the windscreen/fairing back together. I'm finishing a restoration and have the "T" screen and a bunch of parts. Not sure if the parts are correct for the bike...

I made the cable connections. The folks at Bob's BMW (MD) suggested it was probably the starter relay
switch needed to be replaced.
It seems as if it should be an 'out with the old and...
So i have a 93 k1100lt. Got the bike used and i noticed the master cylinder glass on the front is missing. The Assembly is next to impossible to find and cant even find a new sight glass
Is it possible to go abs delete and get a new master cylinder handle to match so i can ride the bike.
