I've used 'search' but can't find exactly what I am after......

My second-hand bike already has the lower cowl-mounted LEDs that stay on at the same intensity whether I'm on high or low beam. I think that is an Oz thing for this model bike.

I've added a couple of spotlights/driving lights to the handlebars for use away from the city to light up the road in the twisties. But to do that I've simply run a relay from the battery to an external switch on the left cluster. What I would like (and to make my bike legal in Oz) is to have the handlebar-mounted lights only come on with the high beam. I've watched a couple of Youtube clips on the installation of the lower cowl fog/spot lights with hi/low switching, but they use a specific plug and play loom for OEM plugs already fitted - but not on Oz bikes.

I've looked under the left hand 'gas key' panel, had a peek up toward the underside of the headlight and seen the fuses under the seat. Does anyone know of an easy place to find the high beam wire in any location so that I can posi-tap it for a switching trigger?

Thanks

If I'm reading this thing correctly (and I know crap about electronics) the #5 fuse, a 10 amp, is the high beam fuse. There are 2 brown and white wires for the high beam, one going to the headlight relay and other going to the turn/horn/passing switch.
I don't have a scanner, but I can try and take a hi res pic of the wiring diagram later.

I got the Blues in my shoes and my stockings

Remove the panel that has the fog light switch and fuel door release. On the wire harness plug for the fog light switch the BLUE wire is the one you want.;)The blue wire is high beam power.
