LED lights use almost no power so you shouldent have a problem adding some.
I have been looking at doing some on my Nomad.

Hey Vulcan-Rider. I recently put in an LED tail light board from Clear Alternatives, and I charted the electrical draw pre and post install. Check out my post HERE. Go to the post dated 8/1/08 for the electrical chart.

They're MUCH brighter with and without the brake applied, and they use less electric power.

i just got done putting on a cheap set from e-bay. 16$ for 4 LEDS, no switches included, plenty of wire. Looks sweet and is about 150$ cheaper than kuryaken. No electrical issues and I even have a questionable battery

I agree with CcSpinner...

LEDs have much less current draw than regular incandescent bulbs, so you can be much more generous with LEDs (than otherwise), and not have any serious electrical capacity issues.

I've installed a fairly elaborate LED system that I use for marker lights (see signature). My voltmeter reading doesn't really change much when I switch them on--even when stopped at a traffic light.

Let us know what you system/parts you decide on...
