Wiring Lights In A Series
Once again, pardon my ignorance of electrical theory and systems.......
Since the ones I'm using are only 35 watts, I'm going to add another light to my home-brew backup lighting system. I've got the KLR torn down and need to re-wire because my initial wire routing to the fairing-mounted switch slightly impedes access to my radiator cap. Now would be the most opportune time to get this done.
Will the route described below (a series, I believe), work?
Hot wire from the battery, through a fuse, to the hot wire on the right light, then a wire from the ground on the right light to the hot wire on the left light, ground wire then up to the switch, then straight back to the battery?
If it's possible to wire the lights in a series with one switch, will they lights be less bright than if I had dedicated hot and ground wires going to each light individually?
Goal is to get two lights activated by one switch.
Any advice would be appreciated.
