alright, I know some of you guys are all technical and stuff so i need your help
can you give me some instructions please?

1)how do i wire up my teather switch?

2)how do i wire up a dirtbike killswitch as my starting botton?

3)i recall someone said that they somehow spliced the headlight high and low beam wires together or something so tehy are both on all the time(when the lights are on)...how do you do this?

4)and what do i do about the choke?

1) To wire up a teather, first you need to conect the two orange wires together. Then take the teather wires and run one to the white wire either coming up on the side by the speroket cover or on the right hand side behind the upper motor mount. the other wire from the teather you run to a ground up by you're handlebar stem just loosen a bolt put the bare ire under it and tighten it back down.

2) to wire up a dirtbike kill switch as a start button. take the wires from the switch and conect one to the yellow w/black stripe wire and the other to the black wire.

3) Now I am just running my trailtechs off of the high beam so I connected the solid yellow and grey wire together and it will come on when the key is turned on to the light setting.

4) for the choke/idle advance I just tucked the wire up under the gas tank but some have taken it off completely. if you take it off leave the plunger in the carb and silicone the hole.

so do you think if i put yellow white and grey together, low and high beam will both go on at the same time?

It should. Because basicly all the swtich does is make a conection that lets the power go through to the light bulb, the only thing I'd think about is how much of a draw both lights on would put on the stator.

You can also just do it the cheap-o easy way. The light switch will ignite both the high and low beam light circuit if you move it between its 'clicked' possition, meaning, just move the switch slowly between hi and low and they will both be hot.

JUst remeber the grey wire is a HOT wire meaning there is power in it when the key switch is on the light setting. so if you tie both yellow and white to the grey wire there will be power to both the highbeam and low beam of the lights. Does anyone know the stator amperage of these yet and if the two lights on will have a draw less then the output of the stator at full load?
