I used this method last night on my 07 12GS.
It was made a little more difficult because I have a Touratech dash panel with power outlets.
This meant removing the screen, instruments and dash panel.
After routing the relay trigger wire through the vent plug I pared back the insulation on the white wire to the headlight connector, soldered the trigger wire on and wrapped the joint in insulation tape.
Now I have it all connected via a 5 pin relay with a push switch and indicator light in the dash surround as per the wiring diagram earlier in this thread.
Took a couple of hours and it all works.
No CANBUS errors so far.
