Heres an overview

Not all of the old posts were saved, or I wouldnt be writing this out again. But anyway here it goes.

Pic #1: Just showing off my ride and my lovely garage.
Pic #2: This was my test setup to figure out how I was gonna do it.
Pic #3: Pin breakdown -
30 - green switched 12v from factory relay
85 - ground from factory harness
86 - yellow from highbeam switch to activate relay
87a - new wire to low beam of dual filament bulb
87 - yellow/black to high beam of dual filament bulb
Pic #4: This is where I mounted the relay when i was finished.

Just a few notes - I stripped some insualtion from the green and black wires from the factory harness, to solder in my wires to the new relay. I just unplugged the yellow wire and the yellow/black from the factory harnesses and made connections to the ends of those wires. I put dielectric grease all over the connections and heatshrink tube over that. I think thats it.

What was the benefit of turning off one filament? Just reducing the electrical load? It seems like you'd want the most light you can get out of the system with the high beams on.
