Headlight and tail light cut off switch

I want to wire two simple rocker switches on my 06, one to turn off head lights (HIDs) and one to turn off tail, running,brakes and signals.

This way I could activate stealth mode by turning everything off but headlights, or double stealth with everything off. It would also be nice when working on different things to be able to turn lights off to prevent battery drain.

I've looked and can't quite figure where to tap in to what color wires?

Anyone who has done this should know. Mr Dude tried to explain it but i wasn't sure if the fuse to brake and markers would also turn off tail/running and I can't figure out which wires (what colors) .

I think a lot of people may be interested if we can come up with detailed instructions.

Thanks for any help!

You can get a voltage tester, test for power and wire a switch inline. That simple. All the parts could be had for 15 bucks.

I started pulling fuses and realize I'll need to tap at least one wire each from the first three fuses. I'll be working on it moe today but if anyone knows more. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A novelty for a fantasy.
A friend told me once, "A lifetime fantasy can be ruined by a moment of reality."
I'm not running from cops, or riding 186 but I think it's cool to have my bike set up that way. It's like a "street racer".
Yea, I understand a lot of people think that might be retarded and I understand that thought but hey...It's a cool mod to show friends and make me feel like an outlaw superhero. I like tinkering and thought I could learn a bit and have fun with the project.
Unfortunately I still haven't figured out exactly which wires and where to tap in. So for now, without totally hacking I guess I'll imagine I'm invisible when I flip the switch at 186 running from the imaginary fleet of super cops.
Kidding aside, it would be cool and nice to have the option of lights off sometimes.

Cops don't go 186 mph, ever.
The real "super cops" go 148 to 150 mph, but there are quite few actually.
You could tell all your buddies that when you unplug your counter shaft sensor the ecu will allow you to travel @ 208 mph, because the ecu never "sees 186 mph".
