Does anyone know if the 93 vn750 will handle two full heated suits?

Most heated suits draw between 40 and 90 watts. I believe the max watts output on the VN 750 is 75 watts ( KM had an ealier post on this ). I would say no.

My jacket draws 65W...

and I wouldn't trust my bike to handle much more.

It's a definite NO. I have an old pair of Widder electric gloves I use, but I'm pretty sure they max out the electrical system. I have installed an off switch on the headlight high beam, to free up a little more power. I used to have a voltmeter taped to the handlebars and connected directly to the battery. I did not notice a voltage drop when I used the gloves, but a few more watts and I probably would have. Since my charging system now has 70,000+ miles on it, I plan to install a permanent voltmeter somewhere. I installed one in the fairing of my Goldwing. Unlike the Vulcan, it's stator puts out too much current, and tends to fry the R/R and wiring to the R/R. I carry a roll of wire and a spare R/R with me.
