Does anyone have the schematic for the 2013 headlight system. The service manual just shows the HID CIRCUIT. Also where are the headlight bulb specs?

Why is everyone asking what I am trying to do? Lol I was simply asking for a electrical schematic of that part of the bike. :) but I will be putting on a headlight modulator soon.

Tap the wire that goes to your high beam (bottom bulb) for the modulator.

Jim, I've just scanned in two pages of my "2012 SERVICE MANUAL" (which I bought with my bike, in March 2012), and put them up as PDF pages on my web site. Here are the links:

http://www.billanddot.com/Specifications-p1.8.pdf
http://www.billanddot.com/Headlamp-System-Wiring-p19.5.pdf

That spec page shows the headlight as "High H-11", which is a halogen bulb spec, and "Low: D1SR", which I gather is how HIDs are designated. After the initial release year of 2012, it's my understanding that Vic changed the XCT setup from that to a double-halogen setup, so my manual is not current.

The other link shows the headlight wiring system (as of 2012). You'll want to look at that on a monitor, instead of paper, in order to enlarge it.

Don't touch the glass on the bulbs with bare hands, if you didn't know that.

Since post-2012 XCTs have dual halogens, it's my belief that for those bikes you can choose to modulate either the high or low beams, your choice. I believe that reading vendor info from modulator manufacturers will confirm that that's a choice you can make. (Also, I had a modulator on a bike about 15 years ago, and that's what I recall, back in the day.)

Hope some of this helps you out.
