    I rode 70 miles today using my Tourmaster heated vest, bike master heated grips, and had my phone plugged in and charging. Voltmeter showed 13.7 - 14.0 volts with vest and grips on highest settings.

    Yes is the short answer.

    Coming over from the ST1300 or adding a NC700X?

    if it's running that low of a voltage while riding I wouldn't want to add much more load.

    I did a search for you and found threads that discusses the alternator output:

    Electrical power output?

    I run heated jacket and grips, GPS, phone, LED floodlights, My voltmeter shows 14.2 or so while running, drops into the high 13's at idle. Had no problems on my 2014.

    My 2013 DCT has heated grips and LED driving lights. I wear heated socks, pants, jacket and gloves. Run a phone-as-GPS plugged into bike power. No problems. Voltmeter stays above 13 with all that stuff running.

    On a 12v system, I’m not sure how 13.7 - 14 volts is considered low.

    12v nominal doesn't mean 12v is the actual voltage

    on a charging system in good working order, 13.7v is about the lowest I like to see: any lower and the battery is barely charging. I typically see more like 14.2-14.5.
