So I have Oxfords hotgips and Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 vest with collar. The setup works great, heatwise. However, I noticed that the headlights would flick (pulsate) when both the grips and the vest are turned on ( 2d click on the vest and 70% of the grips).
No flickering when either one of them is fully on!

The flickering is basically a pulse, every few seconds. It is noticeable only at night with no streetlights ( cruising at 75mph, rpm well above 4500). I rode it like that for a few hours, because it was really chilly and no seeming battery issues so far.

Let me guys know if it's normal or I need to do something about it.
Thanks

Sounds like the heat control just pulses the elements and that instantaneous load takes a bit for the RR to recognize and adjust for. If the lights don't dim when your accessories are fully on, the charging system might/should be adequate. Would be best to install a voltmeter to keep an eye on things just to be safe. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.co...ryakyn-LED-Battery-Gauge.aspx?WT.ac=SLIsearch I've got one of these and something similar would be a great idea methinks.
