No sir, you are not obnoxious. Asking how to install lights and then being told the dangers of riding at night is obnoxious.

Now - maybe we should start a new thread?

I have a splitter, but it doesn't seem to come on and off with the bike. Would it be always on? So, what's it good for? I don't want my driving lights to be on all the time . . .

Confused  :(

A new thread might be just the thing...
I haven't even started to look at my harness yet, They are still in the box. I know they have a on off switch to operate the lights and you can wire them into the HI/LO headlight switch to control the brightness.

Maybe this is where a powerhub would come in handy to control what is on always or switched on...

I'll call the installer and ask why he went with a splitter, etc. He had my HID headlights running from the splitter and maybe because I can't really turn my lights on when the bike is off.

Not all that good at electrical doings...  But I will follow instructions. I was thinking of running a powerhub to wire the Denali's into and counting on the Hi/Lo switch to keep them safe.. Mounting location was a biggie also but with ordering the Pca one mounts that is solved.

Woody here is a pic of how I have the wire run into the fairing. Hope this helps. I have a Fuzeblock installed on my bike. This is a very nice power distribution panel that has a place for 5 circuits and you can choose if you want those switched or unswitched power. http://www.fuzeblocks.com/index.php

Faisal, if your referring to the powerstrip that you had on Blue Betty, you are correct, it is constant power.

I made my mounts from a block of 2 inch round delrin.

Willing to help out other COGgers and make more sets for sale? The PCA ones are very nice, but they cost nearly as much as my Mondomotos....$60-65 sounds much more reasonable and still sounds profitable or worth your time??

Shipping from Tanzania would be a bit steep - . - .

What's it good for? Looks like it ran off a relay - maybe it was only powered when bike was on?

I just want my rear led setup again - and to know how to wire up driving lights in the future...

Actually says Tasmania, even more remote if we are indeed referring to the country.....
