KTM 525 EXC Electrical Question

Question

KTM 525 EXC electrical question – Two weeks ago I plugged in my GPS to my KTM’s little battery and then everything went to shit. My battery did not hold a charge, was flat on a few occasions but would charge after a long ride. I also have an aftermarket headlamp on it. Question is: am i asking my battery to do too much or should i replace the battery?

    I have a good and aftermarket headlight on my 525. No issues by here

    If the charger for your gps is straight to your battery it will be a constant draw and eventually kill your battery everytime.\n\nIf its doing this while riding, sounds like you need a higher output stator. Your electrical needs are using more watts thanvthe output of your stator so the deficit is made up by the battery

    What year is your 525? 04-07 stators had no extra juice. My 450 had a fan kit and it kept drawing more than the output. Put a 110 watt stator on and she would power the house if we lost electricity… my current CR250 has a stator from Ricky Stator to powerlights and equipment. Yes, a CR250, NOT CRF…

    Wire gps so its only on when bike is running, change all lights to LED and you should get by. \n\nOtherwise upgrade stator.

    Swap the headlight bulb to a high power LED and that should free up enough power to run your GPS. I can’t imagine it should take more than 3 watts.
