The tail lights only draw about 8 watts each except for the short time you're on the brakes. Not a big wattage saver switching tail & turn signal lights to LED. Do install a voltmeter so you know if the output is adequate or not for your heated gear before you spend a lot of money on electrical mods.
Does the added load on the alternator cause it to die sooner?
