EB Relay kit this easy?

Just want to make sure Im getting this. To install headlight relay kit on '12 glee - unplug one lamp; plug the male socket from the kit into this socket.
- push one female socket from kit onto bulb.
- secure the other female socket and relays in safe place.
- run wire back to PC8.

Is it this easy? Or am I missing something?

Thanks,
John

You unplug both stock lamps, plug the male plug from the kit into one of the stock sockets and tape over the other one, plug the two female sockets from the kit into the lamps, secure any loose items with the relay wires pointing down and run the red and black wires to the PC8.

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

Thank you sir. Your explanation is right on my level- simple.

There have been a few problems in the past with water seeping into the relays. Pointing any openings downward prevents that.

Installed mine an hour ago and install went just as easy as it said it would. I do wish I have bought the kit with the headlight cutout.
