So the headlight from China came with two 12v 25 watt bulbs. These bulbs were not very bright. So after a little brainstorming, I decided to get creative with my existing OEM wiring and will install two H7 12v 55watt bulbs instead.

I was going to install two H4s with high/low beam but decided against it. The H7s will be wired just like the OEM CBR1KRR is, one blulb on at low and two on at high.

Took my "Made in China" OEM wiring harness


Cut off the plugs for the Ram Air Valves and tucked the headlight and turn signal relays in nicely.


Got rid of the China wiring that came with the headlight assy



Harvested the OEM unit of H7s and wiring


This is what I will use instead...I will shorten the wires as well

No doubt...you do great work.

Your "inspiration" bike (the red one) does look pretty hot. I like the Roland Sands CBR1000 naked "The Good Fight" as well.

Wish I had the skills...
