|Cheapmods||Iím all ears when comes to suggestions but I donít think I have other options as of wiring this projector+halos. One of my buddyís projectors wires to the headlights plugs because all it has is ballast and itís totally different installation process than mine|

|Wibbly||i still don't see why you'd have to run three lines from the battery. but if you like it that way then that's all that matters i guess.|

Well, the projector kit that I bought with relay wiring kit. I know I can always control the projectors by using the oem left control but than it’d be too crowded under the upper fairing or the sides due to extra box controllers for the projector (4 extra box on top of 2 ballasts). Ohhh and plus, the relay kit must be connected to battery AND a separate power supply like the license plate terminal (which I have to split).
As a matter of fact, it actually better that way cuz now I can use the headlights circuitry for the running lights (low beam) and halos on high beam (for some reason I don’t like calling it ”angels eyes”).

|Wibbly||Why did you wire it straight from the battery? Why not use the existing circuitry for the headlights|

As it turn out it was loose connection on the (+) terminal.
And the 2 (-) wires goes t ground (body).

This is how I wired it... Hope it makes sense.

|Wibbly||i have no idea, i just know that you have connected it wrong.|

I draw a diagram the best that I could remember in detail and hope this shows what I mightíve done wrong.

|Wibbly||Of course you have to connect the negatives to ground. That's the whole point. Not connecting them to ground is the equivalent of not connecting the positives to power.|

Got it... thanks Wibbly. It works. You’re the man!!! I was working on the wiring yesterday and now I have another issue. Bike would just shuts down as if I turn the key off ignition and this's what I did.
I use a cable kit with relay for independent switch that connect straight from battery to power up both HIDs.
Here are the two things I think I did wrong
1. Using one wiring kit for both HIDs instead of 2.
2. When I wire the (+) wire from ballast to the power (+), it wasn’t necessary for me to hook the (-) wire from the ballast to the power cuz HIDs would turn on. I made some research and a guy had the same problem with his car and he was told that he has a grounding problem. Now if that same problem is what I have, am I suppose to ground both negative tinstead of connecting them together?
I hope I explain my situation clear enough.... btw when the bike shuts off, I checked for blown fuse and all is good. All I had to do is to wait for 5-10 minutes and the bike would start right up but than (say) 5-10 minuets later the same problem occurred.
I hope I explained the situation well.
