Carried over from the Honda Shadow Riders on Facebook,
I was looking to add a dash cam set up on my Bike And I asked if there was any one with electrical knowledge if I can run this : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...ejR4O58JTACy7XUTz2-jJRl3G3Yh9XGYWNWduuVusamWc
on my 1985 Honda Shadow VT500c without killing my stator.
I need to find some info on what my bike pulls for general operation, with my 2 amp alarm system [existing accessory], and see if this camera setup will exceed your total.

I have a Stock 1985 Honda Shadow VT500.
I put a inquiry to the Company that makes this dash cam setup and am waiting to hear back to know what kind of amperage this will draw.

Usually it doesn't take much current to run a small device like that 2-3 amps maybe. So unless you have a lot of heavy loads like heated gear it should be just fine.
Look for the 3 yellow wire connector that always overheats and burns. From the stater to the regulator.
If it is that way just cut out the connector and spliced for a good long life connection.
Most of these Shadows have about a 300 -350 watt charging system. So up to about 25 amps total available.
