It seems now the high beam is aimed too high. Maybe something messed up after I removed the headlight??? Need to adjust it back down.

I had put this mod on the back burner. I dont seem to ride at night that much any more, no hurry.
I finally got my copy of the Hanes service manual with wiring diagrams. Started poking around.
I apologize if I missed a post and this was previously discussed.
Low beam is controlled by the load shedding relay. Which is controlled by the instrument panel control unit. The relay is fed by F4.
Meanwhile.
There are two switched circuits (by main relay) F6 and F8.
F6 is fused @7.5A and feeds the number plate light and the optional accessories plug.
F8 is fused @4A.
The yellow wire coming from the load shedding relay going to the head light runs right by the feed for the plate light.
I decided to bypass the load shedding relay and feed the low beam from the plate light circuit.
The low beam will come on when the ignition is turned on and stay on, like the plate light, when turned off. I know some wont care for this.
I confirmed the yellow wire did indeed feed the low beam with a continuity test before cutting!
Six inches of wire, two splices and capped the wire coming from the load shedding relay.
Buttoned up.
Ops check good.

my Haynes manual has not arrived.  when taking the dust cap off the low beam, do you twist clockwise, or counter-clockwise?  and you need to "pull" on it, or just twist and it will release.  thanks

counter-clockwise about 1/8 of a turn and it should just be loose.
