Aux lighting question

2006 Buell XB12X

I just successfully installed a loud as hell stebel nautilus air horn using a relay. Now I want to add some aux lighting but I'm slightly unsure how to do it the way I want it.

How would you alter this diagram if you wanted to eliminate the toggle switch and just have the aux lights come on only when the high beam was on? (Not sure if it's a factor but I have done the dual headlight mod already).

My uneducated guess is that the green/load wire coming from 86 on the relay could be spliced into the + power to the high beam bulb and everything else in the diagram would remain as is. Am I on the right track?

Yes, when + power is applied to 86, the relay is activated and connects the high amperage 30 input to 87 output. The power applied to 86 can come through a manual switch, from the headlight, from a switched source on the bike (always on when bike on or running), or whatever.
