Wattage output of the 650 alternator

I want to add some electrics to my bike. I've been searching for the max output of the alternator but i have been unable to locate any info. Anyone know the output wattage?

Max Output / 330 Watts / 14.2 VDC

Short answer is 330 Watts, by converting to LED city lights and if you have a 2014 or older Versys converting to LED headlight, you get a wattage gain by the reduction of those loads, however , this is only a good idea if you change to a series regulator, otherwise your shunt regulator will be seeing a load increase greater than designed by Kawasaki engineers,
