I recently installed HID's on my bike and really love them. I bought a delay relay for it (10 sec. delay) and now I just need to wire it in. I thought I had a grasp of what I am supposed to do but googling it just confused me. I'm guessing relays are very flexible. I've never installed one before.
Anyways I came across this photo by wingsconsin and it seemed similar to what I'm trying to do only I'm not using a switch to control the circuits. I just want the delay for the HID's. Could use some help though to make sure I understand what I'm supposed to do. Here is the photo I found from wingsconsin.
I'd like to install this relay so I alter the factory harness as little as possible so everything can be put back to original if desired. I am figuring the way to do the least altering is tap in after the oem connector to the headlight harness. Does this make sense?
a) So should I cut the factory headlight harness then connect that positive lead (from the ignition switch side) to #30?
b) And on the headlight harness connect that positive lead (that goes to the HIDs) to the #87?
c) And then can I connect the same positive lead to #86 as I connected to #30? It just needs switched power right?
d) And then finally connect #85 to a switched ground? Can I tap into the factory harness to the same ground that goes to the headlights?
e) or am I completely off?
p.s. what is the 87A circuit for?
