Dual daytime running headlight
« on: October 11, 2019, 02:19:19 PM »
How’s it going everyone!
I would like to ask if someone modified the high beams with dual light so that it will have low beam and high beam. So that dual headlight will be on for daytime running lights and still have the functionality of the high beam.

Thanks!

Welcome aboard. 👍
The hi/low beam has been discussed ad nauseam. It helps to know that the Z has the same single filament lamp in each side. To get the high or low beam the housing has two different reflectors, one that throws the beam high and one that throws the beam low.
I suppose the easiest way to have both running at the same time would be to find the wires for the 'passing' switch and adding another switch to shunt them together.
Cheers  :821:.

There’s a modulator kit you can get that turns the high beam side on at 70% brightness. There’s a link to it on page 7 of this thread:
