Installing/wiring your driving lights

I have read a lot of threads and have seen multiple different ways that people have wired driving lights onto the "x"... There is one way that I have not yet seen people do. These does seem as though it will be the EASIEST!!

On my 05 1300R inside of the headlight assembly there is a spare plug. It is white in color and has 3 wires going into it. There is a BLUE, BLACK, GREEN. The green is the ground. The blue is the highbeam power (coming straight from the switch), The black is running from your right side blinker (dont worry about this)... THIS PLUG IS LABELED AS THE FOG LIGHT ADAPTER (on the wiring diagram)

You can either try to find the honda plug that will fit the other side or you can simply plug your wires directly into the individual plugs associated with the GREEN (ground) BLUE (power) wires. This will enable your driving lights to turn on when you trigger your highbeams. This is the way that honda has allowed for the AUX lightbar to be plugged in and eliminates the need to add any additional switches, relays or fuses/circuit breakers.

I am in the process of doing mine and was reviewing the wiring diagram earlier. Thought I would pass this on.

If anybody has used this method please chime in!:patriot:

I would put two 72 watt bulbs, for added light!:DJust kidding:cheers:
I have the honda light bar. Plug and play. I never use the bright lights. With the light bar, lights are bright and better then High beam alone! There is a wire you can snip to keep the light bar on all times, but if it aint broke. Why:cheers:
I think 250 ordered it with the bike and other high priced Honda assocories!:D
