I am installed a Viper 4500lb winch, a bossatv radio and probably around a 8" LED light bar. Will I have any issues with my battery? Can it handle all of this?

It all depends on how long each is operate for at one time. The led light bar would be the least amp draw. All batteries have an amp/ hour listing that you could use to do some math with. I haven't seen any specifications of the charging systems output which is the other factor in the equation

And the bike would almost always be running if Im using the winch and lights.

tbh i don't completely know but it never hurts to go with a higher output battery, it's probably one of the best things to do to ensure you dont experience the worse.

Does anyone know the charging system maximum output?

You should never exceed this for any length of time. It will get hot and cook!

It is not like a car alternator rated at 45-70 amps. I am guessing not much more than 5 amps.

Now a quick calculation 5 amps X 12 Volts is 60 Watts.

Watch your total load. When winching try to use a duty cycle approach. not constant winching.
