I have a jacket and gloves and the volt meter doesn't change when i turn them on.

As far as I remember, the T7 has a very powerful alternator, 400W or so. It's actually good to "consume" the generated electrical power, because it otherwise will just be dissipated somewhere else.

I run a 90W heated jacket, heated gloves and heated grips and my volt meter doesn't drop below about 13.6v while above idle.  I would say the only caution would be is to not idle for extended periods with all this stuff running.

I think even idle should be no problem. But no real idea how much wattage is needed for ECU  and plugs and so on. Or at which voltage it will fail.
