Charging system

I bought two new running lights. They are 55watts each. The 919 is stock. Will the charge system handle this ok? My one year old battery when dead, I had to buy another one. I know that there is no short anywhere. Is it these lights?

The stock charging system supplies 380 watts. Stock high beam is 60 W, brake and turn signals are all around 20-15 W. Other lights are small (under 10 W). Worst case scenario, with high beam, brake, turn signal, misc. small lights, and two 55 W running lights, you should be around 250 W - the stock charging system should be able to handle this. You should get a multimeter and check your charging voltage, charging cut-off voltage, and current draw (the last one with the bike turned off) to make sure your charging system works and you don't have any shorts to ground.
