Thanks Mike!! I will be ordering everything soon

A few weeks ago a took a short ride (2-3 miles with a hillclimb or two) in the mountains of southern ohio with an cheap-o led headlamp and a led flashlight black taped to my handlebars. I think the squadron setup will be an improvement

I'll be graduating college here in the next few weeks so hopefully I'll have the time to do a full write up on my install w/ pictures to help others out!

Congrats on almost graduation.

The new dimmer that we supply to Baja for their excellent Squadron family of lights is our IQ-175. With this intelligent dimmer you can use a 2 or 3 position toggle or a momentary contact push button switch to select up to 3 programmable brightness settings.

Any switch can be used, but we provide a wiring diagram on the web site for the Trail Tech 3-position handlebar switch.

I'm getting around to installing my new Squadron. It's going on a '99 LC4 640-E with updated plastic up front fender (SXC) and fork boots in place of the OEM splash guards.

The Squadron instructions didn't include a wiring diagram, which makes sense as it's a two-wire connection. I may be using the old-style dimmer though, and would like to wire this into my existing KTM headlight switch.

Questions:

1) Should I expect pain and anguish in wiring this up, or is integrating with an existing Hi/Low switch easier than I'm thinking?

2) Is the newer dimmer worth the money? Is there a size or reliability advantage?

The setup with your switch should be easy, but with anything electrical nothing is full-proof. The older dimmerbox should include a wiring diagram, pm me and I will email a copy. And I would definitely say the new dimmerbox is worth the money, a much more durable model but does not include keychain remote but still a very quality dimmer with easy set up.

If no keyfob, how do you adjust light intensity with the new dimmer?

It is programmable and adjusted by a hi/low handlebar switch. Here is a link of the how to exactly wire and program the dimmer: http://www.lights.skenedesign.com/IQ_175.shtml
And if you have any problems with setup, feel free to call us at (760) 560 2252 and ask to speak with our tech department. They can walk you step by step to have you desired light output. Hope this information helps. Thanks- Christian

Is it as straightforward as plugging the dimmer into the existing headlight feeds? Something like this?

Thanks. The PDF you linked to appears to confirm the basics of my sketch, although the output wires are run together (as opposed to separate high & low circuits as on the OEM incandescent bulb), and the wire colors are not accurate in my diagram.

Here's the official wiring diagram from the PDF:
