I ride all year long. From Jersey 30 Miles into Manhattan. (60 round trip) Right now I ride a KLR650 with heated grips and heated gloves. I just bought a 2016 FZ-07 and want to add Koso heated grips, a Gerbing 12v dual temp controller for jacket and gloves, and a 12v socket with usb to power my phone. Possibly even led driving lights as well. Does anyone know the alternator output and the stock power draw of the 2016? Has anyone run a setup like this? Should I install a powerblock since there will be many wires running to the battery? Suggestions?

Battery is 10Ah. Honestly don't know the alternator output. If you need to find the stock draw (parasitic load), start it up, turn everything on and put an amp clamp on the +ve battery lead. Add 15-20%. That is the load.
the 07 has a (switched) accessory connector taped under the tank (go on Utube for many excellent explanations to access this). This is 2A. Perfect for a phone/GPS, but you have to get proper cables to convert from the connector to USB

Once you know how much load you have available, you can work out how much you can add. Not sure what you mean by power block. If you mean the plastic connectors referred to as `chocolate blocks' the answer is no, they are not sturdy enough. You probably have enough room to use ring type connectors

Not sure the above is definitive enough for you. Call back if you need.

Thanks Highlander. I'm going to use this INNOVV Power Hub Review - webBikeWorld to get everything hooked up. Should have enough power with out blowing fuses. I probably won't have everything running all at once anyway.

If I'm not mistaken, the alternator output on the FZ07 is rated at 410 Watts @ 5000 RPM. So, if you have enough accessories running to get pretty close to the rated output of the alternator...AND....you ride with the engine RPM lower than 5000, you may eventually run the battery down. Keep the revs up if you are close to the alternator output value. If you are running let's say 200-250 Watts worth of accessories, you will probably be OK with riding normally without regard to engine RPM. Of course this is all subject to the way you ride and how much of a load you are placing on the bike....YMMV
