Truly a plug and play setup. Nice. They don't sell components (otherwise I would have bought their wiring kit), so I'm on a hunt to find compatible plugs for the back of that headlight assembly.
On my GS I posi-tapped into the high beam wire when installing my Kristas. On my GSA sidecar rig I used the transgender plug you mentioned and wow, talk about an easy installation!
