Volt meter installed. I haven't had a chance to test out the system on road as it was 26 degrees yesterday with a snow dusting.
This is more about my exhaust, but you can see the volt meter stuck to the triple tree towards the ending of the video:

I will be adding a voltage meter. Right now I'm trying to get my new exhaust mounted. Apparently the 2009 has a different muffler bracket than earlier 1300R's.
I will be back to tackling electronics after that.

I would change it to option 2 given that is how the manufacturer setup the system.

They originally had the speakers wired using option 2 with their speakers.
Right now, I have it wired with option 1 with the Polk Audio speakers.
Is the consensus that I should be changing the wiring Back to Option 2 using the Polk speakers, then add a voltmeter?

Batwing Amp Wiring
The user manual for the amp addresses the speaker ohm relative to bridged usage. It specifies to use either 4 or 8 ohm speakers for bridged.
The troubleshooting also references how to remedy an issue if the overload protection is triggered.
Without a doubt, running the output in 4 or 8 ohm will reduce the chance of amp failure. The screenshots were taken from the NGMD60.4 manual.
How was it wired from Tsukayu when you received it? Reach out to their technical support for confirmation of the setup.

I would leave the amp like it is, but adding a voltage indicator would take the guesswork out.

Thank you for all the information.
So is the suggestion to go back to a non-bridged setup? Also it install a system volt meter to monitgor the voltage levels so I can make sure I am adequately charging the system?

To monitor my power level I installed a power meter that uses a single multicolored led. Green is great, yellow is caution, and red means you better makes some changes. If Iím jamming to tunes while riding in stop and go traffic, I will see the light move between green and yellow as the cooling fan kicks on. At that point I know it is time to make a change and turn the stereo down thus reducing the power being demanded. For several years this simple yet effective process has served me well. Iíve never been stuck somewhere with a dead bike battery.
My amp setup is an Alpine 445 that is 4x45 Watts. The Jensen radio I have doesnít pull a continuous power for memory to slowly drain the battery which helps. Between the led turn signals, brake light and headlight I have reduced power demand by about 40 watts total which also considers 20 watts for driving lights. The power relay for everything in the fairing is cut off when the starter button is pushed to provide the most possible power for starting the bike.
