Has anyone found information on the charging system for the CTX1300?

What kind of alternator do they have? How strong will the system be? The ST1100 has a pretty robust system. So I'm curious about this evolved motor. We've already heard that the battery is a unique place.

One of the posts here stated the alternator output was higher than the ST1300 but I don't remember where it was. The battery is much smaller due to all LED lighting so that is a consideration for anything you need powered with the bike turned off. All the stuff I would intend to add only needs power with the bike turned on so I don't expect any issue since it is all the same as what I currently have on my ST1100.

600W alternator output (that's over 40A at 14V), but doesn't say at what rpm. I would guess the [Japanese-]industry standard of 5000rpm was meant.

12v/11.7Ah battery.

So, like I said in a previous thread: no problem with the engine on, but watch it with the engine off.

Electrical Output

Thanks Guys. :D

That is very encouraging. Many bikes were given weak out alternators, which will catch up to you one day.

I looked that information up when I first looked at this machine and believe Honda listed the stator/alternator at 50 amps which should be more then enough unless you go insanely crazy with lights and accessories.Dave!!!

have we come across a shop manual/service guide yet? I'm sure the wiring diagram will be in there as well :D
Oh, it's there, all right. You should see that thing! I thought my Gold Wing had a lot of wires, but man, this thing is insane! There are separate diagrams for the standard and deluxe models. Not surprising, since the Deluxe has so much more electrical and electronic stuff on it.

I found the one thing I needed: the ACC output of the fuse block. That's the one I will tap into to drive everything else, except my alarm system, which has to be connected to the battery at all times. The manufacturer makes it VERY clear, though, that the device goes into an ultra-low-power sleep mode when the bike is off. It only wakes up if it detects that the bike is being moved outside of a certain area or otherwise tampered with.

I want to put a spotlight on the backrest (whenever I can get a backrest) pointing backwards, like a bat signal kind of thing only without the bat. So if some yahoo decides to tail-grab my backside, I can just flip a switch and, you know, make him see the light. How much juice you figure one of those things draws? :p

Just like this bear, rear mount LED bars stacked Jaysusss, talk about seeing stars or following the white light ;)



or perhaps an LED flood...



from their site:

1. led sources:single powerful led (10w) as the light source
2. efficiency: 100lm/w
3. work voltage:ac(85v-265v)/(50~60hz)dc(12~24v)
4. power factor(pf):>0.9
5. fixture efficiency:>90%
6. ra>80
7. color temperature (cct):2700~7000k
8. no delay start
9. absolutely eco-friendly: no uv, ir, lead or mercury
10. waterproof: ip65
11. net weight:0.58kgs

If you're going to go crazy might as well do it right! ;)
