First of all STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING! PUT DOWN YOUR TOOLS!
Sorry for yelling but I am a professional mechanic with over 30 years of experience (Aircraft A&P, IA, FCC) who also has worked as a motorcycle mechanic. Believe me when I tell you nothing good comes from permanently
connecting any accessory directly to the battery except heated motorcycle clothing(the load is removed when you remove your butt from motorcycle OR a pigtail to maintain battery which can also be used to run a small battery powered compressor after plugging a tire or to maintain air pressure.
Go buy a 4 pole relay the poles will be marked 30, 85,86,87 then PM me for my # and I'll talk you through it OR go here:
I've been doing business with him for over 10 years and have sent countless folks to him with not one bad review I've heard about about.
Or, go here http://www.autoswitch.com/index.php
these are cool as hell and include a relay....I've personally installed at least 6 on my bikes and countless others on other motorcycles.
I know you're freaking out here but they are simple...I'll explain:
The 30 post goes to the lights and the 87 post goes to your battery. The 85 post goes to ground(a good frame ground) now here's where folks freak a little but its easy....the 86 post goes to one side of the switch, the other side of the switch goes to a switched (by turning on your key) power source...what I would use since the battery on the CC is in front and low is the low beam wire. Tap that on one side of the switch and the other side of the switch goes to 86 as previously stated.
What happens is when you close the switch, current flows to the relay charging the coil in the relay closing the contacts between the 30 and 87 contacts allowing current to flow to the lights. Remove the power and the switch opens...easy peasy nice and easy...ok?
I really mean it...I feel strongly enough about this I'll talk you through it...I don't think you need me to, but I will.
