Anyone notice how much thinner the stock wire guage of the LHS headlight is compared to the RHS? Really glad I decided to install the EB relay harness when I saw that!!

Can you message me the seller name?

Thanks! I guess I'll need to log in with my computer to read messages. I can't find them on the Tapatalk app.

Well, I'm leaving for Torrey tomorrow. See you there! Hopefully my headlight will be on.

That will be on my list of "soon" farkles. I've had the bike a year with 11,000 miles on it. Hopefully the relays will hold up until I get home.

PM sent, but I see another member has sent you a PM. I originally paid about $20 for the exact same item from California, shows ya how much the mark up must be.
The item is shown(I hope) in the photo attached to my triple tree before I put the fairing back on. One connection is extra long, because it's designed for cars. You can bundle it up or trim it and splice. I ended up attaching the relays to my fairing bracket, which worked out fine.
The ground for each headlight plug, can be attached to the bike. I connected mine together and ran them back to the battery.

Do not use the bike frame for ground. Do use the battery negative.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
