On my 929 I just spliced in extra wires from the existing light connector across to the other two. The connectors on the 929 only have the two required pins in each connector so I pulled apart some car connectors and used those wires.

Okay wait, if I do that won't it burn out the fuse and don't you need to use another relay to add to that so voltage equal out ?

I didn't but I guess you could run a completely seperate circuit if you wanted to.

Re: need low beam wiring diagram

So what your saying that you haven't had any problem with the wire getting over load or I should say it did not get fried over time?..if so then I guess it's the easy way to do it.

No problem but I only ran it for a short time before the race season. Then I just kept the race fairings on which have a single CBR250R headlight in the front.

I think there's some confusion here blade. It sounds like pickleboo is under the impression that by using low beam feed over to his high beam light, he'll get another low beam to have both sides on.

The power supply and bulb are the same on both sides pickle. The difference is in the reflector itself which is built into the headlight assembly so you can't do what you're thinking. You'll just end up with your high beam on same as doing it with your handlebar switch.

Reflector?
On the 929 all the globes were the same with both high and low beam elements. All I did was add the extra wiring and it worked fine.
I have no idea if the reflectors are different or not but low beam and high beam are basically the same elements except the low beam element has a plate covering the top half of it so it can only shine downwards.

Re: need low beam wiring diagram

The reflector refers to the chrome backing inside the headlight itself. They look similar but one is designed for low beam reflection and the other for high beam reflection. Same bulb as well, H7. When you say "globe" what are you referring to? We don't use that term or element. Element or filament is in a bulb here.

A bulb is something you plant in the ground here.
Globes contain the element (or filament) and gas to emit the light.

You guys from another planet or something? Kidding, we have tulip bulbs here too!

Either which way blade, you can't make two low beams by running another wire from the low beam circuit to the high beam side.

I see what you're getting at now.
I agree that the two outer reflectors may not focus the low beams in the same way as the centre one does but it's certainly possible to connect them up to have the low beams come on in them and thus have three low beam filaments operating.

However - I just dragged out my headlight to have a look at the reflectors and the OEM globes are single element!
I only have the OEM globe in the centre light so I can't be certain but the two outer lights are modified standard dual filament globes - the base plates are cut down to fit into the lights. My daughter has run off with my camera today but I'll try to remember to get photos.
I don't remember doing it - unless the original owner replaced them himself and didn't want to use the OEM globes for some reason. I do remember modifying the globe I run in the CBR250 headlight for some reason as well.
So, I have to agree on that basis alone that you can't hook up the two outer _OEM_ lights to run low beam. Although you could replace the outer globes with inner low beam globes I guess but you'd have no high beams at all.
