Twin headlight.

I want to connect Buell XB twin headlight.
Don't know much about electronics, so need some help !
Searched and came up with Eastern Beaver, will these parts work ?
I want to have both lights on in high as the current XB set only allows one light at a time, low or high.

H4 conversion relay kit from eastern beaver and Dual beam option from eastern beaver.

XB wires black= ground, white/yellow= low/high, orange=running light.

That harness won't do exactly what you're asking for, but it could with a diode I think. What you want is for the input for the hi-beam to also turn on the lo-beam, but not vice versa. So a one way diode in between the correct wires of that loom would do this...



Obviously the connector won't work either, but that's why there's splicing

or try to pick up the other end on e-bay

Edit: you could also use a third relay in place of the diode

Also, I meant h4 plug

And that bottom box is the fuse that's in the kit.

And you could make all of this on your own too if you wish, but it's hard to find quality off the shelf parts for much less than eastern beaver has them.

Hey thanks for the reply 7moore7,
If you see above the H4 conversion relay kit from eastern beaver comes with a dual beam option,


( DUAL BEAM OPTION - this option can be added to any of the Kits on this page. A diode is soldered into a jumper that will trigger the LO beam relay when the HI beam relay is powered. This means you will have both LO beam and HI beam in HI beam position. If your bike already has both beams on in HI Position do NOT order this option.


Yep and the plug I have already cut off, looks like I can splice into the lo/high XB wires and good to go.

Well shoot, if it already has the diode then it'll be a piece of cake. Looks like you're set!

Thanks for your help, I will order tonight and post pics when it arrives and I connect it up.
He says on his web site that he takes around 3 days to make and a week or so for delivery.

Just curious how you are mounting that? Are you putting the headlights into something like the Powerbronze Twin Headlight setup, or are you making a custom mount inside the stock headlight?

Going naked CruxGNZ , already pulled the front fairing and started mounting XB headlights with XB screen. Will also be changing rear ducktail. Not sure yet to go café racer or dirt bike bars.

Just curious, What did the headlight and screen end up costing you? New or used? I know a lot of Harley dealers still are sitting on a bunch of old Buell stock and just want to get rid of it. I'm wanting to do the same headlight setup on my bike too, just starting to look around for everything. Also toying with the idea of swapping in a Buell X1 aluminum rear subframe...they look really good! I went dirt bike bars on my bike, and I'm very happy with the result. A lot more leverage and way more comfortable...my wrists have never been happier.

Hey scooter72, the headlight assembly cost me $104.95 new from Harley-Davidson dealer a few years back and the screen is a new after market carbon fiber screen, you can pick up xb screens second hand for around $10-$15 or new $40-$70.

Just updating for any one interested in buying from Easter Beaver,


Got my H4 conversion relay kit from eastern beaver in the post a few days ago, took around a week and a half from Japan to Australia, I'm happy with that and product looks good.


I might start a new build thread .

What would be cool would be to find a set of duel filament bulbs high and low beam so you can run both lows for normal operation and the high beams for spotting deer and cows at night running the twisties...


Also make sure the relay is in place and wired properly before you play around with a powered up headlight assembly wired into the OEM high low beam switch!


It is real easy to burn out the OEM h/l beam bar switch, the relay will keep this from happening.


Post some pics when your done.
