coops ...you can find just about everything here by using the "search"  function

just type in the subject and there will be a few links

not hard at all

 so by typing in "installing relays"

I got this .....   http://www.google.com/search?q=installing+relays+&sitesearch=k100-forum.com&selected_id=-1&tid=a93748479969d10d067486ef7806a266  

here's what I found which could be interesting

https://www.k100-forum.com/t702-headlight-upgrade-experiances

 you will find a circuit or two in there as well

if using the headlight connector to "pick off "  the colours are yellow white and brown

good luck

Yeah bought back some memories that thread so please dont think that is the normal here but far from it.
With regard to the lights the one thing to be careful of is dont exceed the capacity of the alternator so you should not go any higher than 55w for each light or the alternator will get overloaded and the voltage drops off and so does the light output. The new LED lights are good for the application.

I've got a pair of 35w HID driving lights waiting to go on.  Light is not a problem.
