    Sheesh. Now I’m terrified this is going to happen to me while riding. Guess I’m going to be reading up on replacing them and start doing so regularly.

    Mine probably had play that I just didn’t notice while riding. Had I put it on a jack and checked I might have saved myself some time. But if you do it yourself its less than $50, cheap life insurance. Most will say to just do it when you change the tire/have the wheels off.

    We’re you on 301 south passing Shadygrove rd. around 09 this morning? Thinking it was you, but also not. The 4Runner had a lift and black wheels.

    Waytek is my go-to for electrical but probably not cheaper after minimum buys and/or shiping. In this case "headlight relay" probably just means it has the specific pin layout which, from the pic, is non-standard. You can substitute any relay that can handle the voltage/amperage and be just fine as long as you aren't working with a proprietary socket.

    What kind of bike and what's wrong with the standard hi/lo switch that makes you want to add a momentary? If you're adding the capability, Hella makes a waterproof relay and socket combo you can just splice in for around $15-20 a pop but if you're just adding a momentary so you're not physically clicking hi/lo then you can probably just add that in-line to the signal wire to the existing relay.

    Here’s the instructions when I searched it earlier. It’s not a standard relay, looks maybe like a double pole relay? Likely worth it to just buy that one since you know it’ll work.

    Ok yeah that's a bit of a hybrid double pole with one single throw and one double throw circuit. Lows are getting power in both states and highs just when energized. I'm really confused by the use of "momentary" though because unless there's some sort of logic circuit in that relay, a momentary would only flash the lights as long as you're pressing it like the first click on the truck's turn stalk. You'd want a standard ON-OFF switch of some kind but I'd recommend an ON-OFF-(ON) rocker where the third state is momentary and you can flash your lights.

    If there's no specific socket, that relay can also be replaced with a DPDT relay and just not use the extra circuit... those aren't exactly common or cheap though (and the sockets even less so) so for critical circuits like headlights I would almost always go with common parts you can buy at any auto parts house. In this case one SPDT and SPST standard relay.

    Im ditching the old switch for a smaller one to get some clutter off the bars. Putting on a momentary push button that’s smaller to flip between high and low beams. Only one gets power at a time with the headlight Im using (ETA: that may not be true, but at least only one is illuminated). Everything is all wired up and ready to go I just need the relay. It is a double pole (double throw?). I know that Drag Specialties one off of Dennis Kirk will work I’d just rather save $30 (I’m cheap) if there’s another alternative. I’m wondering if the difference in the way the terminals are labeled (56 vs 85, etc.) means anything.

    @BTHawk got the Valley Tune in. There's step by step under resources on OV's site. Can't really comment on the tune yet. Charging voltage is higher so AGM batteries are getting what they need. And tip in is pretty strong. I've got a road trip on Tuesday. Will hopefully know more by then.

    Thought so. I caught it out of the corner of my eye. Come to think of it… the one I saw may have been silver (sun glare off it). Wasn’t sure if you derp’d your wheels or anything.

    Did you go with standard or light? My cable doesn't get to me until Thursday this week, so I am doing the tune over the 4th of July weekend. I was going to go with standard initially. Hopefully the tip-in is less than what the kdmax one was...

    Honestly, buy the DK relay. Looking at that diagram again it appears the splice and all is interior to the relay so that and the pin layout are totally proprietary and something you'll never find in a standard relay. That also means the two should actually both be on with the high beams with how the DK relay is designed. I would use a voltmeter and check for voltage at both headlight pins when you have the relay energized.

    Otherwise if you want to simplify with a standard ISO relay and the two really aren't on together, I can talk you through how to rewire it. It would actually be very straightforward if the two lights really aren't on together.

    I appreciate that! Let me get it wired up to the old switch without the relay and see how it lights up.

    changed rear pads on the 4runner this weekend and noticed they had Toyota logos on them. Last time this 4runner was at a dealer for maintenance was 108k miles, so at 230k now, that means we got a good 120k out of these lol

    Pretty much sucked all possibly life out of these. Still hadn't burned through the whole pad and rotor was in good shape

    Glad I stumbled on this. Was thinking about pulling the trigger on the Mt Baker. I like that it doesn’t swing out to the side and looks legit for the price. What’s your review? Cheap for a reason?

    I thought it was more points for bumping a fellow racer into the fence post!?!?!:burnrubber:


    WTF Dave?!?!?! I thought it was bad loosing a one lug and 4 of the other 5 only having a few, at best, threads left on the lugs...you've set the bar and I'll never hope to best it!

    It would appear to be a wise investment!:anonymous: But I've also seen this bad larry on some tool you tube channels...


    Damn these incidents, glad you're ok!
