Heated gear is definitely the way to go if you ride in the cold often. Otherwise, it can get pretty expensive.

I rode for 3 hrs in 50 degrees yesterday. Hands didn't feel cool until 2 hrs in and then they weren't bad. Heated great would be nice for really cold temps.

Godd job and the write-up. So why would you get heated grips if you have heated gloves? So do you have any photos of the heated gloves cables? like is the jacket special or just runs a cable down the arms?

I really want to do this, especially living in MN. The weather can get cold and stay cold yet not get ice or snow until December. The problem is at 32 degrees or lower it is even colder going 80+ MPH. So I was seriously looking at heated gear, yet I was weary if the CBR would be able to handle the draw of gloves, pants, socks, and jacket and sitting in ice cold temps all day.

Would a higher capacity battery work? Or am I just resigned to getting a different bike if I want to ride longer into the seasons.

Since I don't have the heated jacket liner yet, I just use an extended y-cable that I route through my regular jacket. I'm about to get an Aerostich suit though and will grab the heated jacket liner for that.

There is no heat element on the bottom of the gloves, just on the top. I honestly don't need heated grips though. I would just get them to even out the heat distribution.

A higher capacity battery would do you no good if you are still draining it faster than charging it. If all you are running is say a 65 Watt heated jacket liner and 30 Watt gloves, you might have problems with the bike idling. Once up to speed though, you would be fine as the stator would be giving you more Amps to the battery. An onboard ammeter would tell you if you are charging or draining your battery at any given time.

Did you use the dual troller or the single?

I use the gloves, jacket, pants, and socks on a dual remote troller - I've never had any problems with my battery draining, even on a 200 mile ride to the coast and back.
