I've tried to embed the wiring diagrams but not working for me.. same for uploading to photobucket...it keeps reducing size.

Here is where I found them posted for us on "the other" site
www.vtr1000.org • View topic - High resolution wiring diagram
Credit to cybercarl and others for posting the diagrams I found invaluable.

Yes those are SO much easier to read than the manual.

Color definition is a bit rough at times on the smaller one and we found the black and white depiction easier to read for that.. but following the wire from source to target,, MUCH better in color.

I wrongly assumed (assumed because there are NO real instructions for this thing) that the two pin female connector on the projector was for the optional Halo light..WRONG
Warming up the oven again time Meow
Back open again, projector out (and being replaced, see post several above)

But this is the high beam connector that needs to be assembled and attached to the projector before installation.

Then you'll need to drill a hole in the headlight housing to pass the wires though so that large sealed two pin connector is on the outside of the housing and available to plug into the harness.

Thank you for this post. I've been trying to figure out a switch setup for my recent TRS retro fit. The difference is in my lighting is night and day

So remember kids... If you drive on the right hand side of the road and order from TRS, make sure you order a Left Hand Drive projector because you sit on the left hand side of the car even though you're ordering for a bike that you drive on the right hand side of the road while straddling the middle of the vehicle..

CLEAR

Good.. Well then, lets get this project finished

They need a "both hand" drive version for us motorcyclists.

Funny you should mention that.

The XHD is created by the bulb shield.

It is simply a raised section on the left end that blocks light.

I'm considering grinding away about 1/2 of the light blocking ridge starting on the right so I'll have a wider swath of light but still have cut off on the extreme left so as to not blind on coming drivers

And I guess I never "closed out" this thread....

I used the HID for almost a year and just could not get used to the sharply defined upper cut off in low beam...As the bike leaned left or right, your light pattern dipped and raised....it was distracting at beast, and loss of light on the low side was an issue for me. I considered modifying the shield but was not able to source a service replacement should I need one after a mistake>

I ended up selling the HID set up headlight assembly and going to LED .... And love it.. Cyclops Adventure Sports H4 LED Version 10.0 is what Im using now... Having run Version 6 through 10...I have not been disappointed with any of them and the product just gets better and better. https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.c...ulb_p_192.html
