Honda F6B 2013 Hi Beam trigger

Post by terrydj » Fri Nov 29, 2019 5:55 am



I'm hooking up some spotlights on the bike and I need to find the high beam trigger or some other wire I can connect the spotlights to high beam
So the spotlights will go on and off with the high beam
Thankyou


Sorry I missed your call, but the hairs slicked back and I was Rockin to the Ring Tone

Or maybe the high beam relay if anyone knows where that is

The relays are under the seat in the relay panel

Keep in mind the existing relay and headlight wiring is sized to run your factory headlights - nothing more. Hooking up a set of spotlights to them as well will likely a) blow a fuse, and b) melt some wiring if you just increase the fuse size.

The correct way to do this is to install a new relay that is triggered by the existing high beam wire. That new relay then switches a NEW (fused) circuit from the battery that powers the spotlights.
