Sounds good. Question: do you use a heated jacket and gloves on your s1000r w/o issue of them drawing too much power away from headlights? So no issues running s1000r like this? Thx

No issues with my Gerbing Jacket and gloves, I also have auxiliary lights installed as well.

Yes indeed.....  Really man you're kinda over analyzing this just a little.. I think you will find your more capable than you think... Pulling the seat is a breeze and chances are there will come a day you will need to access the battery..

The charging system is plenty robust enough to run both headlights, a heated jacket and auxiliary driving lights* all at the same time and still has room to spare.  I wasn't sure it would be, but I ran a voltmeter as I rode with everything powered on full blast and the charge never dipped into the danger zone.

Just wanted to update this and say:

1) Thanks to all for tips on this
2) Picked up a screwdriver with ability to swap torx bits-made it a now worries task (no worries of stripping threads like last time with my short right angle torx tools)
3) Battery harness dealer put on is same amp rating (15) as the one from First Gear but much thicker gauge wire so will just keep the oem ish harness on.
4) Waiting on coax/cable adaptor to plug troller into and heated jacket liner days ahead :)

Powerlet has a nice 12v female socket rear set mount that looks good.  I may go this route in the summer for future heat gear.  I really envy my buddys factory socket on his RT.

There is probably a power line coming from the battery zip tied to your frame. It should have a female coax connection. It should also have a fuse. If it has a fuse then you can use it as a power connection for heated gear troller (I'm told by my dealer). I replaced my oem or dealer installed fused line with one from the maker of my heated gear but in hindsight feel I should have just kept the original since it was so nicely strapped to the subframe.
