    Adding Headlight relay for dipped beam?

    Had a look at the wiring diagram and the Headlight relay only supplies the lower high beam (and high beam warning light).

    Thinking of adding an extra relay with thicker wires to reduce voltage drop, and hopefully improve the dipped beam as even with Osram Night Breaker 200's the low beam isn't that bright on the road and is washed out by streetlights and other vehicles headlights.

    I do have Givi Trekker s310 fog/auxiliary lights but I've disconnected them as the are wired to the battery in a way that they can be switched on without the ignition being on and the wiring from the battery to the relay under the left fairing wasn't protected by a fuse and they were fitted 90° out of correct lens orientation so have a pretty useless beam pattern.

    Thinking of removing them and replacing with a set of Hella DE micro H3 foglights I already have, I've ordered a 08V02-MKA-D80 Fog light switch for a NC750X and will make up a loom to suit them with another additional relay.

    I am very pleased with the Denali D4 lights with the Data Dim relay I fitted to the CT. The spread of light on dip is very good. In fact I liked them so much I have ended up fitting them to the Old AT, the R80/gs and the Integra. Not cheap but, as always, you get what you pay for.
