are you asking if you can bridge the power from the r/h switch block to the l/h switch block under the tank? As in you are wanting to power on the l/h light switch the high low switch for some reason. Are you having trouble with the r/h light switch, you can bypass it for sure.

If you have a look in the portal under the interactive electrical something, you will find a diagram with the r/h switch being fed by a grey/blue and then leaving the switch on the green/blue which goes over to the l/h switch so you should be able to bridge them to have the h/light permanently on when the ign switch is turned on. why are you after this feature? if something went wrong in the wiring to the headlight then it can be quickly turned off by the light switch, you'd have to pull over and turn the whole engine off, what you plannin?

I would be very wary of having high beam on permanently as even in daytime it is illegal. The law states that you are not to use the high beam within 200feet or whatever it is in metres and says nothing about day or night. I know of several riders who have copped a bluey over it.
Personally I find it highly distracting when any vehicle is coming towards me in daylight with the high beam on. Good bright LED day running lights are a far better alternative in my opinion.

Rick I think he just wants to bypass the on off switch on the right not the high low on the left, he hasn't said why yet though.

If you just want the headlight on all the time I have a switch block here that has no headlight switch and does what you may want I will swap for yours with the headlight switch for postage costs.

Guys. He's previously posted regarding a problem with his Hi/Lo beam switch.
Right hand light switch starter button shorting out
I think he is looking to by-pass his faulty sw and power the Hi/Lo from the main light sw on the R/H block. However there seems to be some confusion in his description between L/H and R/H switches.

Hey wsiddens. You need to keep your posts together on the same thread otherwise its difficult to follow. Can you confirm which switch is not working... Hi/Lo beam or the On/Off parker/headlight.

I think it would be easier to just add a temporary accessory sw on the bars or dash somewhere till you get your faulty sw repaired. It should be easy to rig a temporary 2 position switch from the connector under the tank.
