Hey all! I have heard some talk of others rewiring their headlight on these bikes so that it will utilize either the high beam (instead of low - stock) or you can actually wire it so that both the high and low beam are on. So let's hear some feedback from those that have made this mod. What are the pros and cons? Can the lighting coil handle both the high and low beam on at the same time? Also, I usually run with my light on to make it easier for others to see me on the trail. I have already noticed some very slight melting of the plastic around the headlight (as we ride tight slow trails and it's been in the 90's most of the time). My concern is that with both the high and low running on the bike, there will be more heat and therefor possibly substantial melting. Finally, if someone can give specific instructions (wire colors, where to splice ,etc.) I think it would be useful for us all - Thanks!!
