Are you doing a kit or doing all the wiring yourself?

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

The instructions for the Eastern Beaver kit are at Installation
They are closed for all of August though.

You'll need two SPST relays of at least 20A rating, one for high beam and one for low beam.

Great! I see they have one hooks direct to battery and one to block. I assume the direct to battery is preferred
