Any questions? Post them here or PM, happy to answer.
I received my LR4 lights last week and got them installed and working today. Took a test ride after dark and they really light up the road and bar ditches. Love them!

Question about the Bypass/blue wire. I thought at first that was a 'trigger' somewhat like a relay, but now I'm thinking if there is power on it that is what feeds the light? If that is the case in order to bypass the dimmer with the bright light switch it seems I should use the bright light to latch a relay that would then feed power to the light? Or can I just tap into the bright power with the blue wire? This is on a F800GS with a Canbus, not sure how the Canbus will feel about using some extra power.

I hope you can understand my questions, I'm not sure they sense to anyone but me.
