I can't power it all at once. I do have enough power to use the Garmins, one set of lights, and the electric vest without draining the battery, although it's darned close.

Do you carry a spare stator? Although an alternator may be rated at "X" watts, actually running it at "X" watts all the time can reduce it's life.
No, I don't carry a spare -- but then again, I don't need to use the max very often. For normal riding during the day, I'll have the Garmins and *maybe* the Motolights on for some extra visibility. That's not pulling close to max watts. I'd have to throw in the electric vest to start pulling max.

Also, remember I have HID bulbs in the headlight, so I'm using fewer watts than I would with a stock setup.
