I switched to a westy headlight set up, which you may not know uses a different headlight connector than the stock headlight set up. I need to know which color wires from the headlight harness go to the 3 connectors on the westy headlight....

Well assuming your h4's are the same as mine. I also don't know which wires are which but I do know the colors. The ground (black) is (looking at the wire side of the connector) the left hand side. Then I have a blue and a white coming out of the stock harness the blue goes to the middle slot and the white (still looking at the wire side) goes on the right hand side.

My stock harness is brown, yellow with black stripe, and white with black stripe. I'd assume brown is ground, other than that I'm not sure

Christ, are you serious?

What bulb are you using? Stock sealed? H4?

One is ground, one is high beam, one is low beam. Just f*ck around with it 'til it works.

Sorry for jump starting an older thread. The yellow with black is certainly the low beam(have spent many hours working on these) and the white with black is your high beam. that should have you fixed if you have not already figured it out. If you are still not sure, since you will be working with cutting them anyway, connect the ground, then one other wire where you think it goes. It your lows don't work when they should, then I'm wrong and swap them around. you are in no dander of frying or popping anything unless you get the ground wrong.:screwy:
