I tried posting in a couple different areas but apparently this is the only place that I can post right now. I spent a significant amount of time writing an introduction post and explaining my ideas on some upgrades for my bike but when I went to post it, everything was lost because my session timed out. This time I will copy everything before previewing but that's really annoying.
I'm new to this forum and I joined because I was hoping someone would be able to provide some helpful information about my bike. I purchased a 2009 CBR600RR almost a year ago and it's the 3rd CBR600RR that I've ever owned. I bought my first bike in November 2005 and it was a 2006 CBR600RR. I love this bike and I love riding.
Short question, what is the total wattage required for all the basic things on a 2009 CBR600RR?
I'm looking to take my bike into the 21st century. I want to give her some upgrades/updates but I'm not sure what she can handle. I found out that the bike is supposed to provide 340W @5,000rpm. I also found out that the Hibeam and Lowbeam headlights both use 55W. I'm always riding around with both my Hibeam and Lowbeam headlights on so this would total 110W. This is consuming a lot of energy and I read that the LED versions use 35W but I believe I found some that use 17.5W but that sounds too good to be true. The front blinkers use 21.5W and the rear blinkers use 21W. Since they won't be on at the same time, this means it uses 42.5W total. I don't use my blinkers that often so it doesn't usually consume any energy. Since the bike has the tail light delete kit does that mean they're LED now and consume less? I need to know
Headlights= 55W each or 110W total
Turn signals= 42.5W
License plate= LED how many watts though? Does 5-10 sound right?
Brake/Tail light= LED and it says not serviceable, does the tail light and brake light use the same amount? When you press the brake does the tail light stay light or go off?
Instrument cluster= ???
Fuel pump= ???
Cooling fan= ???
Position light= LED how many watts though? What is the position light?
I'm looking to add on some accessories but I don't want to add on too much. The total available is 340W @5,000rpm and the headlights are using almost 1/3 of the energy. If I still have the 55W installed I'll probably look into changing those out. I want to add on a cellphone mount in the center fork. I took out the plug and it measured a little over 1/2in so I think the 14mm will work. Anyone try the ram mount center fork mount? Some of the reviews complain about the mount spinning but I think they installed it incorrectly. I don't want to mount it on the gas tank because it will be in the way if I'm leaning over. I also want to add a camera to the bike or a dashcam system. It says input 12V and output 5V, 2A so does that mean it's only using 10W? That sounds really low. Maybe 10W per camera? What about the display? Anyone else using the Blueskysea dashcam system on their bike? I'm worried about it saying that operating temp range goes to 104F so I'm not sure if it will function under the back seat with the exhaust there heating it up or in the summer when it's hotter than 104F here in Phoenix. I also want to add on at least one dual USB charger which says it charges at 5V, 2.1A so that's 10.5W per outlet or 21W total right? I want to start motovloging so it would be nice to be able to charge my phone, cameras, Bluetooth communication devices, passengers devices, etc. if I have to.
Thanks for any info or advice you can offer.
