High Beam AND Low Beam On Together

I had an idea to rewire the high/low beam button so it works like the highbeam flasher button. (both high and low beams on at the same time) At times it's really dark at night here, so I find myself holding down the highbeam flasher button a lot so i could see further ahead on the road...
Simply jumper 2 wires on the high/low switch. You have to jumper the black wire to the red/green (red with green stripe) wire. I used a small piece of wire the same gauge as the existing wires. Just be careful soldering so you don't melt the switch's plastic housing.

Style_one,
Do you remember where you got your information - which forum? Hopefully there'd be something in simple English - for a guy that doesn't even know what a diode is could follow. I agree that there's an un-nerving lack of near vision on high beam.

unfortunately, it was from a forum that doesn't exist anymore. maybe whenever i get around to stripping my bike down to clean it i'll take pics of all the little tidbits to add to the blog spot.

Style one...any chance you could post a pic of where you wired the diode from? Some of us..(who..me??? ) arent exactly electrically adept.

Thanks!

You'd need to hold the button down with your thumb - on my bike at least - not recomended !
