I've wired up a pair of 10w (each) LED aux lights to my motorcycle (a Kawi KLX250S). I wanted to run them off of the high beam switch. That part was easy.
I replaced the headlight bulb with a low-beam-only HID kit. With this installed, hitting the high beam switch turns off the headlight (while turning on the aux lights). I would like to keep the headlight on.
What I did was run a 12v line off of the relay powering the aux lights (it's a relay with twin 87 outputs), but it's backfeeding and causing the aux lights to be on all the time. I'm told I need a diode to correct this, but having no electrical training (I can solder and follow directions but can't read a schematic to save my life), I don't know how to select the proper one. Any help would be very much appreciated! :)
