aftermarket led lights

thinking about adding a couple 18 watt per light led lights to the xx, wondering if there ok to tap into the wires for the headlight or do I need to run a separate wire from the battery and switch them, I don't want to overload the stock wires or the stock headlight switch would be 36 total watts on led not sure how much juice they pull but being led I am sure its very low

I'm not saying you can't splice into headlight harness, but I wouldn't. Buy a wire harness, and connect right to the battery. The harness should come with a in line fuse, relay, and on & off switch. Usually the harness kits are a mile long, so you will probably have to cut it down, and splice back together. I'd solder the wires and use heat shrink. I mounted a set of 3" four led light pods on my blk&gry quad on the fender supports.

Plus with a separate switch you can turn them off, when another rider comes at, so you don't blind them! And I think amps are what more important than the watts but idk.
