What wire to tap for Skene

Got some leds and a skene iq175 . Skene info says wire the white wire to the high beam and lights will come on full power with high beam . So there are 3 wires going in to the high beam on my 2012 12gs witch one do i tap ?

I've got a similar setup, only I'm also using HID's on my bike - which I tapped into the hot wire coming out.

The only thing I can suggest now is to pull the cover off of your high beam and look at the wire colors feeding the bulb connector - brown is ground - so what ever the other color is... is the right one...

This is the IQ155TS. If I remember right, the red wire went to the brake wire and it's hidden and hell if I remember what color it was. I put the taps on and used a multimeter to measure the voltage while hitting the brake in order to figure out which one was which (brown is ground) . A dab of silicone or liquid electrical tape seals the tap if you tap the wrong one.
