    auxiliary lights on a garden tractor ,capacity question

    I am wanting too install a couple of extra lights on my GT 275 with a Kawasaki FV540V 17HP engine. I've searched high and low trying too find what this engine has for additional amperage/wattage capacity to help me decide what watt bulbs to buy. I'm sure LED's will be the best choice...its just frustrating not knowing how much leeway I have. Anyone know or can point me in the right direction to find this info?
    Thanks!

    There is not a lot of overhead for sure. I have never found data thats going to help you.

    Even if you know the output they really dont tell you what the current usage for what it takes to run the coil, etc.

    I would think you have a couple amps to work (24 watts).

    I used to run a 40 watt backup light on my GT.
