What a difference!

Finally was able to get everything going with these. Turns out, after going thru the direct wiring troubleshooting, found that the instructions had me reversing the polarity on the high beam circuit.
Fortunately this only caused the CANBUS to shut down my HB circuit and not blow the bulb(s) as I feared and the display indicated.
Switched the wires and, voila!, Tons o' bright light.
A bonus is leaving the light switch 'on' during the day or night and a quick blip flash of the high beams will get their attention!!

Question Is "more" REALLY better?

Greetings 65SlashTwo,



I really like what you've done on you red (best color) GSA regarding the addition of the Baja Designs Squadron lights above the OEM fog (?) lights. Do you see yourself ever removing the Stockers and running only the LED units? Don't get me wrong, I am a founding member of the "more is better" school of thought.

Thanks! I don't see myself taking the 'fog' lights off. I actually run them on all the time for better visibility to cagers and have them pointed 'downish' to keep from getting flashed at night.
They widen my 'light footprint' and provide very good extra light to the sides of my bike at night.
