As far as turn signals, the rear ones don't really draw enough current to make a difference since they are almost never on. The front ones contain running lights, which are on all the time. I doubt switching to LEDs will make any difference as far as the stator is concerned, I just prefer incandescent for everything but the headlight. I wish you could get a rear turn signal running light conversion kit with red lenses. I have one on my Sportster. So I have both the tail light and rear turn signals on all the time. Better visibility from the rear. It is illegal to have any amber light showing from the rear except turn signals. I put a cutoff switch on my headlight high beam, so I can turn my headlight off in the daytime when I use my electric gloves to avoid overloading the electrical system and running the battery down.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
