Yep, correct. It is connected to the tail light side of the connector.

I'd say both sides as there are connector halves at each end to bridge the stock connector. However it is termed, it is a great place to find a connector with an ignition switched wire to trigger a relay. The wire colors even match my favorite wiring diagram for the process.

Yea, this connects between the 2 plugs, so no connection is broken and a feed is taken to activate the relay.

Let me know when you start producing headlight relays. I begrudge the high prices Eastern Beaver charge.  :)

Hmm, just looked them up, wow quite expensive. I'll do some research and maybe knock up one to see how much I can do them for. Bit busy at the moment though.

I second that! Postage costs etc. It's a very good mod to make, and one I keep forgetting about :shy:

I was tempted to have a go but it's knowing what and where to source good quality products. A guide to the various electrical connectors required would be ideal.

I'd be interested if anyone has info on sourcing the bike specific connectors?

Depends on what you are after some are like chickens teeth unless you want over a 1000 units and others readily available. For the GPI connectors have been trial and error for example.

I modded one of these headlight relay kits for my K5 Wee, just had to shorten some cables.

that's cheaper than I could do them for, I was pricing up the parts earlier, I'd be looking at £40ish unfortunately. Although the relays I'd use would be smaller ones than with that kit, the strom has plenty of space in that area.

Maybe not as cheap, but much shorter delivery time and a damned sight longer warranty.

PM responded.

If anyone would be interested in a highlight relay let me know and I'll look at knocking one up.

I would be interested.

It would save Mr Greywolf telling me he told me so when my lights do pack up.

Give me a few weeks and I'll get back to you when I've had chance to get something sorted.
