  • Saying Halo

    I bought halo headlights and passing lamps. I need to know how to wire the halos on all. I am hoping to connect to the "running light" wire leading to the turn signals, so I can run just the halos on the passing lamps. On the right side (as your riding), I see the following colored wires in the light bar to the passing lamp/turn signal: Black, Blue, Yellow, and I think dark green. Hard to see the wires on the other side. Seems to be sheathing around a bunch of those wires. Need to disassemble the other and see if I can see better. The light bar is the yami light bar, I added it a long time ago.

    I have the headlight off, and the new headlight installed on the light ring, I need to figure out what to connect that halo wire to? Ignition wire, running light wire, something else? I know practically all the wires to the bike run through the headlight housing. I don't know what color wire is what. I have an '04 R*. If no one knows, does anyone know where I can get a wiring schematic of the bike?

    Appreciate any guidance you can offer.

    Bump.

    So, no one has halo lights?

      Get yourself a 12 volt test light. And take it from there.

        Through some trial and error I found the running lights for the turn signals. They are blue (right) and dark blue (left) wires connected to one blue wire (two into one) in the headlight wiring.. I'm hoping the fuse can handle the current of the passing lamp halos? I could tap into that same line for the headlight's halos, though I'm not sure. Appreciate any thoughts on this matter. TIA! I was going to convert to led turn signals. This might be a good time to do that as well. What's another $180 bucks

            Got everything together. Passing lamps and headlight @ $68. Had a fiasco with custom dynamics led turn signals. Sent them back. Instead used led turn signals bulbs from Amazon @ $26 for both front & rear. Lighted fairing trim @ $40 from a wreck seller on eBay. I had the bat brows & fender eagle already. Wired halos to running lights. Passing lamps on separate switch. Lighted trim wired to an accessory switch that lights up front wheel well, the eagle, bat lashes and some side marker lights. So for $134, this is what it looks like. Installed a new radio, as the one on the bike was about done.

              Looks great slyguy! I like the amber lights in the windshield trim.

                Do you know the brand of lights you used on the fairing? I've been looking for something like that. How do they look on the fairing when not lit during the day?

                  These are the lights: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

                  As I said I got them all (headlight and passing lamps) for $68 (I couldn't pass that up). Here's a pic of mine (mind the dirty windshield):

                    That whole setup looks really good. Can you provide some more detail on the LEDs that follow the contour of the batwing. Is that something you put together or did you find them online?

                      Kuryakyn. I think they're called "bat lashes". I'm not sure if they still sell them. Newer ones have integrated turn signals (more wiring for you, woohoo). Check custom dynamics or kuryakyn.

                        Thank you. Looks like they still have them in Kuryakyn site. I don't currently have a batwing (standard Silverado windshield) but have contemplated looking for one. If I'm doing any wiring getting it all configured these would make a sharp addition. Thanks for that info.
