I was gonna mimic everyone else but wasn't sure which side would be better for lowbeam. The left side has the modified bimmer projection beam; the right side Im going to put a cap over the bulb and run a higher watt.

Sounds like I can go either way. Sweet. Thanks guys!

Some people are taking it as looking forward with the bike, or looking forward at the bike.
They are from what I believe all done the same way if its dual headlight.

CaligoneTX, My son's RC51 switches both headlamps to bright on high beam. I don't remember which of the two is on when set to low beam.

Matt, does your wiring harness allow both lights to be on with the low beam only? I ask because on the FZ6 forum a guy sold a single wire that connected to the low beam blade on the high beam bulb and it connected to the wiring harness in a female slot for the left side (on my bike). Now I run both lights on at all times without the high beam on but the high beam still works if i need it. I like having the added visibility of both lights on but it looks better too.
