EB ships world wide except for Brazil. Shipping
The US dollar is used for pricing.

Which kit to get depends on whether you want any additional switching to be able to turn one or both lights on and off and whether you want to connect to the battery or a fuse block. Another option is whether to plug into the H4 coupler, one of the stock headlight plugs, or to remove the bulk of the couplers and cut them off to connect directly to the wires.

Those just wanting a plug and play solution to a stock twin headlight bike like the Glee would get the H4 Dual Headlight Relay Kit on the VStrom page with the H4 coupler to plug into the stock light socket and the battery connect with fuse holder.

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

Hey Ride On,
I just order the "plug and play" H4 coupler version kit along with the PC8 fuse box and had it shipped to Vancouver. I was shocked how quickly it arrived. I think it was 3, maybe 4 days later I got the package. Super easy to install too.

Thanks to plug in your things to the pc8 do you need special connectors or does it all come with the pc8.

The PC8 output connectors take a wire end stripped bare. For the inputs, ring terminals are supplied as well as shrink tubing.

The PC8 takes bare wire that you stick into a opening then you tighten down a slot head screw to hold it in place. The slot head screw is quite small and I had to dig out a screwdriver for sunglasses to tighten it up.
