I approach fog/ driving lights on bikes like automakers do on cars: they're on with the low beams or on by themselves. Personally, I'd have them on with both high and low beams, with a separate switch. That way the electrical system isn't taxed so heavily upon start up.

have you encountered any issues with hooking them up to the high beam? i spliced it into the high beam bulb and when i turn on the high beam the fog lights come on....

Believe the 'off with high beams' set up for cars is primarily due to the laws that require it in most States.

The set I mounted came with a harness that connected directly to the headlight harness. It is set up so the road/fog lights are on all the time but increase/decrease with the High/Low switch for the head light. There is also a separate switch that turns them off. This is a great set up that provides better light all of the time without irritating or disturbing oncoming traffic.

As for not taxing the electrical system, an LED's draw is so low I doubt there is a potential for trouble.

Well put, sir. On all accounts. And as far as taxing the system, I am going off the experience of others. My father in law has a bored out Suzuki marauder that wouldn't start if the headlight was on, unless he bump started it. His problem was the starter wouldn't get enough juice to move. He put a toggle switch on his headlight and solved that issue.
I still like the idea of having nothing extra draining the battery while trying to start whatever I may be starting. Be it lights, HVAC controls, fans, whatever. I'm a nerd like that.:nerd

ScabbyDoo what kit do you have. It sounds like a nice kit with easy install. I like the idea of the lights being on with both the high and low beams. The more lights the better I am seen. Thanks. MikeR
