Need help with headlight wiring

Recommended Posts

Hey guys - starting on my headlight mod. The wiring diagram in the manual I have doesn't show the wire colors going to the headlight. I have a black wire, a white one, and 2 yellow wires going to the light. I need to know which wires are needed to illuminate just the low beam. Anyone out there know?

Thanks

Doc

Doc, does the black wire have a white stripe? I'm looking at the wire diagram & I'm pretty sure it should be the black w/ white striped wire (common to both hi & lo) & the white wire (lo). The two yellows are for the hi beam & hi indicator on the instrument cluster.

Bear - yes, my bad, the black wire does have a white stripe.

So, yellow wires wouldn't be needed if just hooking up a single low beam light - just the black w/ white (ground), and the white (hot) - correct?

Thanks!

Sorry to jump in here, but does this mean I could use a 3 position switch (off/low/high) to replace the stock switch? I've been dying to get that big ugly thing off my bike, and I'm not using turn signals.
