A Few Aux Lighting Questions
I know there are lots of posts about light installation, but I didn't want to hijack someone else's thread.
After doing some research, I decided to buy an Eastern Beaver headlight relay system for my 2012 DL650A (as compared to making one myself). In addition, I will be connecting some auxiliary lights (front and back), and that is where my questions are based on.
1) For the front aux lights (2 x 8 watt LED), I would like them to be on when my high beams are on. I usually ride with high beams on during the day to be a bit more visible. I rarely drive at night. What is the best way to connect these lights? Directly to the wires where the EB harness connects to the bulbs?
2) I am adding an LED "third brake light". I am just going to connect the brake light wire and not the running light wire (so it will only be on when the brake is applied). Should I be connecting a relay to that, or am I OK to wire the ground and power wire directly?
Thank you for the help!
