Re: Headlight Wiring Question

are you planning on keeping the light switch pulled out at the time as well.. If so, Run a wire from the ign terminal of the start switch to a relay. Have that relay control power to your light switch.

Re: Headlight Wiring Question

Ok then Thats Exactly What I Wanted To Know. So I Just Get The Wire Off The Direct Source and Add It To A Switch Source Right?

Re: Headlight Wiring Question

yes, esentually that's it. I suggested the relay though to keep from putting too much of a draw onto the ignition side so that power to the coil isn't interferred with.
