Need help w/ relaying lights
Hey guys, I made a post awhile back concerning a few mods I'd like to do to my 2005 klr. Unfortunately, I have virtually no experience with electrical work, so I was hoping to get some advice from y'all. Ideally, I would like just my low beam to turn on when the switch is on low and the highbeam + auxillary LEDs when the switch is on high. I'm at school currently so I dont have a soldering iron but I'm willing to go out and purchase one if need be.
- 16 Ga wire
- 12 Ga wire
- 2 bosch relays
- 2 x 27W waterproff LED lamp
- 1 x fusible link (can I get by with one or will I need 1 for headlight and 1 for auxillary light?)
- Various sizes of whatever the crimp-on connectors are called.
25A fuses (I'm fairly certain this is correct but not positive)
1. So, if my understanding is correct, the layouts are as follows:
--- Low beam ---
battery -> fuse -> relay
relay is connected to a ground, the headlight low beam, and the low handlebar switch.
--- High beam ---
battery-> fuse -> relay
Relay is then wired to both auxiliary lights, the handlebar switch, and a ground. Could I also have the actual high beam bulb wired to the same relay?
Any obvious issues with my plan? Any tips or suggestions? Also, which gauges should I use for which applications?
