This guide is a simple way to keep the low beam on when using the high beam for better lighting at night (It saves you from riding on low beam and keeping the pass switch pressed to keep both lights on), you can lower the high beam down to the same height as the low beam to keep them both on all the time but you loose the advantage of high beam, there is a modification that uses a dual filament lamp so that you can have twin low and high beam but takes more modification than a simple soldering job. (Added to thread 10/12/13)

step one: grab your fav phillips screw driver




undo these, the first one is longer than the second - im sure you wont get them mixed up.

step two: once the screws are out its a simple case of pulling it apart and moving it out of the way



then remove the 4 screws holding the switchs inplace



step three: once removed becareful with the main lights switch, its easily popped apart and there is a tiny ball bearing inside which can be easily lost - speaking from experience and spending about 10mins routing about in the dust to find it :rolleyes:


now i found some old household wire, cut off a piece about 15mm long - kept it thin aswell, maybe only 8 strands thick - cover it in a thin bit of solder so its bendable, chop off any long bits not needed



step four: once you have your bridge ready place it across the blue and green terminals, you may wish to use pliers to hold it inplace as its gonna get hot - then solder in the bridge



unlike the photo, try not to pull the switch apart - as i said if you lose that ballbearing your going to add more time than needed doing this simple conversion.


the whole mod should take you about 10mins if your prepared first, so once its all popped back together you will have low beam on its own, then high beam and low beam together - plus the pass trigger switch works aswell

(not my own work but have done it on mine and a friends YZF both times working perfectly so any questions etc do ask :))

Just so you know... copying images from other forum doesn't work like that.
You need to copy them each one at a time.

Rightly click > copy image > paste.

Either that, or you have to edit each of these images to get them to display..

no it doesnt :D its basically like riding while holding the pass switch, but instead when you put the high beam switch on it keeps power to the low beam while the switch connects the high beam, this way you have a low beam on its own and high beam with low beam, much better for seeing the road :D

if there's a fire and they put it down to an electrical fault and find that, then bye bye to your insurance indeed.

Another HINT/TIP to do this is have an elastic band around your pass light!!!

Yeah but eventually, you're gonna have to take the hi beam off. And it's probably abit fiddly to grab an elastic band with gloves on
