Thank you for the carefill explanations.
From your description I see that you did not use wire harness that came with the lights, correct?

I used the plug&play connectors, but cut the wires before the switch, and connected them to a SW Motech switch, which is guaranteed 100% weather resistant. I'm not an electrician, but this way has always worked and is easy to disassemble ;).

Hello Max2007


Max 2007,
do you have part # for "accessories connector with wires".
did you use white 6 pin connector? (I'm attaching photos). Looks like you did not have to route extra wires to the battery and ignition key turns them off!
on 2_extra_connectors photo - 2 more seemingly unused connectors: 2 contacts (top) and 4 contacts (below), with similar 4 contacts connector on the right side - any ideas what are they intended for?

I used white 6 pin conector! (acessoris conector),
I bought conector part with wires that fits 6 pin conector by honda diler(i do not know part number)! This one was from maybe older model so i changed wires pins to mach positions of + constant and ignition+! This was easy task so i had wires to conect  fuse and switch and i did not have bother original bike wires!  Light harnes i cut and conected to relay. (no conection to the battery)
I eliminated light switch! Other conectors i did not bother with them, as acessoris 6 pin conector is all we need! Wires there can do 10A, and led lights are less, think about 4,5A!
I used red conectors for conections between wires!
I never did this before, and it is not very complicated!
Link for AT switch.

 This wires example helped!

How did you route cable from left to right light? (physical routing)

I've ordered switch and connector.
while waiting for parts arrival will try to investigate other connectors. I have 2017 model and I see that main harness is prepared for more features than currently configured/used

I have 2017 model! I route the cable from the left panel, above radiator, under rght panel with light conectors only coming out!
Main harness can accept oem fog lights, heating grips! Maybe gps oem set! I eould not bother another conectors for lights 6 pin one is right one! 😃👍

Found this source (USA): (did not want to wait aliexpress shipping)
https://www.klsupply.com/electrical-terminal-kits/electrical-terminals-and-connectors.asp
part number: 34-9080 - this is a kit - bought mail and female connectors, corresponding pins and rubber insulators/plugs.
at the moment they have 2 left in stock. contact K&L to verify stock.

alternatively, for 6 pin connector look for Honda OEM Part 08A71-MGS-D30
it has only 3  contacts but for aux. lights this should be enough
