Quick sketch of the circuitry involved in wiring a new headlight on most motorcycles or cafe racers. Includes high-beam circuit.


One of my spring projects is to re-wire my wife's old Yamaha. I figure I'll just scrap the stock wiring and run my own.

This is a circuit of my own creation. I sketched it mostly as a way to think out loud regarding the wiring of her headlight. This light is wired 70's-style, with a common ground (the frame of the bike) and only positive DC current carried through the actual wires.
