12V Signal for High Beam on 2019 and Up Models
on: July 09, 2020, 10:17:25 PM
Does anyone know if there is a 12V signal somewhere that switches on/off with the high beam?  I don't think there is one at the headlight anymore because its now an LED.

I'm thinking off adding some bright led driving lights and want to run a dimmer that goes to full bright when the high beam is on.

Up !!

Anyone would share wiring diagram of head lights on mk3 models ?

Did someone already remove the bulbs ? Is it always H7 bulbs ? I can't find any reference to replacement bulbs...  :012:

I see... Sorry but I'm not used to OEM LEDs headlights.

Had a quick look to headlight mount today. So there is no bulb. Looks like the full headlight box is only 1 piece.

Would love to mount my skenelights controler for auxiliary leds. Loved the way it could control the leds from high beam signal. Will send a mail to skenelights.

Someone to share the headlight wiring maybe ?

So, after digging on the net and with a little help from my friend  :763:, high beam signal should be the red+black wire on the headlight connector.

May not have time to test this in short term, but anyway will do this later. Will keep you posted.



What I found out also is that headlights assembly is a component in itself. Which is veeery expensive (~900 USD). Seems that it is the same as on Ninja 400 and 650 series. Part # 23004-0395.

Obviously leds can't be changed... I suppose they use top quality multi leds lamps, so that no chance to have a light die completely during the bike life ??

Looking forward to check this on my bike. Really can't believe leds can't be changed  :lostit:

Led headlights are becoming standard on motorcycles.  It's my guess that once these bikes age enough that the led brightness/reliability becomes an issue, someone will be offering a service replacing the led inside the headlight.

As automotive LED's normally last approx 30,000 hours, this lifespan equates to riding 8 hours a day for the next +10 years  :7:

So to conclude, I confirm the high beam signal is 12v and is on the red+black wire of the headlight connector (gren wire on headlight mount side after the connector).  The connector is on the top of the headlight mount. Only 1 connector for the full headlight system, which make that there is much less wires and much more space under the front fairing than on mk2.

I've been able to fit my old auxiliary led lights with sw-motech lights mounts, and skenelight IQ-275 driver which enables to switch them automatically from x% on low beam to 100% on high beam.

Everything powered from the OEM auxiliary/fog lights connector which is located on same place as on mk2. But the connector type is a bit different, so I had to remove the pins from my previous circuit and insert them in the new connector. Fortunately the male+female connectors are already on the bike.

Front fairings and frame is quite different from mk2, so additional lights fitting is competely different from mk2. No compatibility.

What is surprising also is that when you switch high beam on while engine is off, high beam lights does not fire, but high beam wire gets powered, si I can get auxiliary lights at 100% with engine off  (my battery will kill me :034:)
