    Just got a new bates headlight for my 81 Special II. New headlight has white, blue, green and yellow wire, stock has black, yellow and green. Any idea what goes where? Wiring is really not my thing.

    on the old harness
    yellow = hi
    green = low
    black = ground
    i do believe
    i would try
    white > black
    Green > Yellow
    Yellow > Green
    blue > ?

    Any reason for switching the green and yellow? I think the extra wire might be for the blue light on top. What part of MN?

    Look at my thread here: http://www.xs400.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8539

    The yellow on the light was the blue indicator.

    Thanks, JPanagel, that's exactly what I was looking for. Would you come down here for a case of beer and help me rewire? :)
