Wiring High Beam

Im thinking of doing some custom work to my RC, but i would want to center one light on the front

i figured in order to get it to work, i would just need to get the wiring circuit from the high beam and re route it into the new light

and are all hid lights dual? to support both low and high?


advice/input/opinions appreciated, thanks

HIDs are not dual, only single operation.

You could simply cut the lowbeam power on one side and the highbeam on the other. That way one will turn on when the bike is in low beam mode, the other turns on with the original "low beam" when highbeam is selected.

If you were adding an alternative light in the center of the two standard lights to be used as a highbeam/flasher etc, cut the highbeam wires to the socket for the standard lights and rewire one of them to the new aux light.

Or you could go crazy like tHe MUtT and make one side a projection beam from a trashed headlight and alter as written above to have one low/one high beam.
