HID lights and Eastern Beaver H4 relay harness

I just installed Eastern Beaver's H4 headlight relay kit. If I add the VVME HID light kit to replace the stock headlights, is the Eastern Beaver harness superfluous? or do I just reconnect the H4 kit after installing the HID kits?

The HID kit includes a relay. The relay kit is indeed superfluous.

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

Thanks. I just got my credit card bill - apparently I have maxed out my farkle budget for this fiscal year. HID will have wait! At least I have peace of mind that I won't fry my wiring in the meantime.

Yeah that's what sold me on the VVME. $20 more than an H4 relay kit for, well, HID.
