I mounted the hid balasts to the inside ledges on the fiarings, and Liv decided to leave me the digital camera so i have attached pix.
Next time i have the covers off i will show you how i ran the wiring along the edges.
I have included a photo of the relay blocks i installed near the battery. i made the wires long enough so i can move them out of the way to replace the battery.
For the wiring to the globes i cut a small hole for the wires to poke thru the base of the original headlight cover.
others have cut dirty great holes thru the cover then patched round the holes and it looks disgusting.
i ran the wires for the globes in the fairing of the nose near where the two holes in the nose are.I held the wires in place with 100 mph tape on the inside. i carry a roll of it in my panniers,never know when it might in handy.
to run the power leads from the battery to the front i ran the wires near the radiator to the centre of the bike then straight forwars.this way i missed the forks from lock to lock.hope his makes sense. i will shove my camera in the front end and get some photos.
Photo 1 - looking from front of bike to left side hid ballast mounted to ledge on fairing.
photo 2 - wiring near battery for relays to power hid lights.i labelled the fuse holders with a L & H (low/high)
photo 3 - where the wiring for the relays usually live
photo 4 - under the nose cone looking upwards. the big red wires are the new power cables i ran from the relays to the ballasts.the thin brown wires are the ones i ran from the high / low plugs to the relays to turn the relays on/off.
photo 5. camera sitting on the front guard looking forward. see the wires all exiting the base of the light cover. see the 100mph tape inside the fairing keeping the wires in there, see my shoulder??and again the 2 brown wires,one off the positive for low, one for positive off high beam ran to relays under seat.
i promise better photos next time i have the "Enterprise" in bits
