    I'm looking at adding a set of the new dual intensity Denali D4 lights to my AT with factory Honda fog light switch and have a question.

    Does the front dash plug have a high beam wire in it?

    The dual intensity module needs a high beam signal to switch between modes and I am trying to use all factory connectors, no wire taps.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    There is a four pin connector in the front dash with a high beam trigger,

    I believe this is the pinout:

    Green ground
    Red yellow + after contact = switched supply.
    Blue = dash board indicator High beam
    Blue Black = dash board indicator Fog Light

    AT wiring Eastern Beaver - 1.jpg I installed Denali D2. Used the kit as it came - did not use the Honda fog light switch. Located the Denali control switch on the 'shelf' just above where the honda switch would go - sorry no pics right now.
    Used Eastern Beaver 3 circuit kit to supply power to Denali, Powerlet socket (for heated jacket). Bought the Eastern Beaver front power splitter and tapped off the 4-pin:
    - Blue wire to trigger the Denali to go to high intensity on high beam.
    - Red/yellow for Denali switched power trigger
    Tapped off the Eastern Beaver splitter 2-pin for GPS power

    Here's a wiring diagram to help you from this thread http://www.africatwinforum.com/forum/201-electronics/12673-oem-fog-light-switch-usa-2.html

    That’s the same setup I’d like to do, but with the Honda fog light switch. Unfortunately although your post is excellent, I’m hopeless when it comes to electrics, I really need photos, or better still, a video to help me with the installation. I wish Twistedthrottle would do an installation video on an Africa Twin.

    Thanks for taking the time to write the post, I’m sure it will be very helpful for many.

    Regret I don't have a wiring schematic for the Denali switch. It looks like a simple push button but the switch LED is 2-colour (amber / green) and it's wired into the Denali switch box that does off - low intensity - full intensity.

    If you are installing standard lights with the Honda switch then the wiring diagram I attached is what you need. Some people ditch the relay and power directly from the honda wiring harness if the light power draw is low enough.

    If you are installing Denali and want the dual intensity, then as much as the Honda switch and dash light are intriguing to integrate, easier to install the Denali kit as it comes and then go riding. Besides, if something goes wrong, better to return the Denali parts in stock form, not chopped into bits.
