H4 Dual Headlight Relay Kit

Hey gang,
Whats your opinion on installing the headlight relay kit? I have a 2011 DL650A
Is the kit something I should absolutely have, or not really necessary?
What do you think?
As always, I value your opinions and vast knowledge of our machines,

Go for it, gives you a slight lumen boost, and helps keep your headlight switch in good condition.

Are you referring to the Eastern beaver relay kit? If so, do it. It draws less juice from your battery and, at least in my case, makes the headlights brighter.
