Looking at purchasing a Chieftain but Im a year round rider..vt1100C3 w/o a wind screen. As a result i use a heated suit from toes to top i think it first gear and i also leave an adapter for my trickle charger. I assume i can hook these up w/o creating issues w direct connections to the battery.

I noticed the cca of oem battery and was 330 I am thinking an antigravity brand battery w more cca might give good service.

So my questions

1. Anyone a cold weather rider with accesories hooked up? Has it created any issues?

2. What are the charging and electrical components? Stator. Rectifer...etc. My new bike is a 1998 so Im in new territory. Also is the service manuel worth purchasing?

3. Anyone using after market battery. I have been using motobatt batteries and happy with their perfornance.


Thanks for any response.

You are write about going to the battery you will not have a problem
there are two accessory wires, one under the seat and one in the faring behind the headlight
