Caught me on a technicality but you are right, that seems adequate and wondering why yamaha says add a 27" lightbar need alternator40amps at 14.4 volts = 576 watts If they ran at 12 volts, you would never charge the battery.
They told me that the electrical system has only 5 amps in reserve after counting on the cars components to keep it running.Can you run a radio without the alternator (and no light bar)?
That sucks but I would like to test it to be sure. Not that I don't believe them but it seems like the only people that say you HAVE to buy the alternator are the ones who sell it. Still, I love that an alternator kit was ready to go before the car was even available. Playing chicken with my few accessories and a dead battery in my teryx is getting old! (Have not had an issue yet but I feel so limited on I can use) Wimpy stators are always one of the major negatives when I weigh utv vs buggy.The told me that the electrical system has only 5 amps in reserve after counting on the cars components to keep it running.
That's not much. He said point blank, if you add any extra electrical items they recommend adding the alternator kit or you run the risk of being stranded with a dead battery.
