Many thanks!

Here you are.

I've picked the control line from inside the headlight housing. Just grab it from the high beam line (56a) by using a posi tap branch. Drill a small hole into the housing cap and lead the line outside to the switch input line.
Use a rubber seal to tighten the hole and preventing water to get into the housing.
Use a relais with diode for preventing any harm to the sensitive electronics. I've used a BOSCH one but any other with diode will work as well.
Be sure to connect relais' clamp 86 with positive line coming from switch not 85!

I am interested in using these lights for high beams on my motorcycle(s). I am not too good with electrical installations though unless it is fairly simple. I was thinking about replacing my current headlight bulb with a xeon bulb and using it for low beam only. I would like to disconnect the headlight's high beam power lead and just run 2 wires off that to power the LED's. Then I would just run a ground to the LEDS. This way when I flip the switch to high beams the LEDS will light up, and when I flip it back to low beams they will shut off. Does this seem like an ok way to wire these lights? It seems like the simplist and most cost effective solution for an electrical noob :)

Also, would I need another mount to mount these to my forks? I plan on mounting them to a Dorsoduro but I may also mount a 2nd pair to my Ninja 500 if i like them.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It would work, but you could just connect the ground lead on the lights to the ground lead on the bulb harness.
Just make sure you wire them properly and don't let the magic blue smoke out.

As for mounting, it's up to you if you think whatever you can come up with will be sufficient.

Ahh thanks, that sounds like a fairly easy procedure. I am soooo looking forward to having real high beams on my bike(s)! :)

Hi Pepperjack,

sorry I haven't had a chance to get back to you. I had a motorcycle áccident recently that's put me on crutches for a few weeks, and family obligations over in Europe as well, so I'm juggling a bit.

Yes, I do ship internationally, and yes, still going strong with inventory in stock. The earliest I'll be able to ship is August 8th.

PM me here, or email to ghoverkamp@gmail.com . Not sure why I didn't get the other message.

All the best,

George

I installed the lights on my daughter's Dr650 a few days ago, then had the misfortune of riding in front of her on an overcast day...the lights are IGNORANTLY bright in the mirrors. These lights are great, may be ordering a second set in the near future.

That's why they are more effective than a little "meep" horn, even in broad daylight.
Did she MEAN to blind you?
