I need a bit of help. I installed the Denali 2 and wired them so they would run at 40% until I hit the high beams and then they would go to 100%. Well, the lights work fine with the low beams but will only go to 100% when I hit the instant high beam trigger. If I use the high beam switch the Denali's shut off but the high beams work fine. I don't get it?:headbang:

The flash to pass switch turns on both the low and high beam if the Hi/Lo switch is on low. The Hi/Lo switch only activates one or the other. I'll bet you connected the Denali white wire to the low beam hot using the diagram at TwistedThrottle.com
It should go to an ignition on hot wire like a hot wire in a fuse block or an orange/green bike wire.

You are exactly right! I followed their instructions to a T. So you are suggesting to run the white wire back to the PC-8 only to the fused side or to the orange/ green by the heated grips connector? If I run it to the PC-8 can I use the same switched terminal as the red wire is connected to? Or does it need it's own terminal?:thumbup:

You can run the white wire to the red wire as you are using a fuse block. You did not follow the instructions. You ran the white wire to the low beam wire. The instructions say to connect the white wire to a running light wire. The low beam wire is off when the high beam is selected. The white wire needs to be hot whenever the ignition is on and off when the ignition is off. It needs to run to the fuse block or a wire that can be used to trigger the fuse block.

I've installed The EB H4 Dual relay kit and Jim uses different wiring colors for his set up. Yellow is low and white is high. I'm sure I confused the wiring. The lights do work with the low beams, they shut down when I switch on the high beams. I think I need a break and continue this tomorrow. Thanks for the help. I'm sure I will sort this out.

I was thinking the low beam is a running light wire, but now that you mention it the lows do cut out when switching to high. So I need a constant source of electricity to run the lights, hence running the wire back to the fuse box. Got it!
