How many watts are the extra lights that you want to power?

10 amps on those wires is absolutely pushing it. You need to fit a relay to take the load.

125 watts?  That's a huge amount of power for an LED light.  Do you have a product name or link?

They don't use 125W.  They use 15W. (125W would be a ridiculous amount of power for an LED light.)

From the English listing for that item:

Light power: 125W
Actual power: 15W

Since they only use 15W each you can wire them directly through the switch and don't need a relay.

How I would wire them up:

Power them from the Green/Brown wire at the white alarm connector in the relay box. (That way they have fused switched power.)

Ground them through the switch:

Ground the brown wire from the switch to the main grounding point under the tank. (The bolt to the frame with lots of brown wires going to it.)

Attach the yellow/violet wire from the switch to the grounds of the lights.

Be aware that 15 watt LED lights are probably bright enough to damage your retina if you look at them too long.  My 10 watt driving lights are pretty close to the intensity of a welding arc. 

That brightness is great in traffic, but you need to be careful around them.
