Why does everyone overlook charging system output?

I've read 590 watts but I couldn't find it in the owner's manual. I guess you subtract the lights, EFI, ABS, TC etc. from the gross output to get the amount you have to play with.

The seat pictured in the Rider review is not stock. At least it varies a lot from the one shown on the website.

I wish I could give first person review but not for another two weeks or so....
