Thinking of hooking up some 55w Pilot driving lights (PL-1093W) to the V2K. I bought these a couple years back for my truck and never installed. Any issues with power use/consumption on the stock charging system, or best to leave well enough alone?

I've got 55 watt lights on my 2000 and haven't had any trouble for the three years I've had them. The switch is wired through the acc. plug in the headlight bucket so the bike has to be on for them to work then I have the lights themselves running through a relay. My buddies Roadking has the 35 watt lights and it's different as night and day.

110W at 12 V is roughly 4.6 Amps. Should be fine on you charging system. I'd be more concerned about the heat they generate. 110W is quite a bit...
