According to the addendum in the manual, it states '0.17 kw @ 5000 rpm' . So the output is 170 watts.

Thanks! I am going to change to a led head light equal to about 2000 lumens and change the rest of the bulbs to led and add 2 27 watt yellow fog lamps.

Add all of the bulb wattage for the full time on bulbs, headlight, taillight, instrument lights, etc.
Add all the bulb wattage for the part time bulbs, brake, turn, turn indicators, etc. and divide by 4 (25%)
Add these together and subtract from 135, this is the total reserve wattage you have to work with.
Why 135 when the system is rated at 170? You need enough left over to charge the battery and keep it charged, @20% of total available.
