    Any pics of where you guys mounted the Rally/Susquehanna harness relay? I just received my harness and I'm undecided as to where to mount it.

    Curious if a 20amp relay would be sufficient for the Flosser 90w bulbs? I did some calculations and it looks like the amperage draw should be around 12-15 amps (6.1 amps per bulb @ 14.7vdc and 7.5 amps per bulb @12vdc) which gives about 5-8 amps of headroom.

    I have used this relay setup on other projects and it works great. Nice small packaging, 12awg primary wiring and waterproof.

    I had just tucked mine in between the battery and fender, wasn’t hard mounted. But others have found spots on the fender wall there to mount them. More ideas are posted in the 2nd Gen headlight thread for relay mounting if you ask over there.

    Yes a 20A relay would work. As you point out 180w/12v=15A, which should provide the adequate needed headroom.

    The listing doesn’t specifically say what kind of relay it is. You want a 5 pole that has a double output. Ie both pins 87 and 87a become energized by the contact is closed. This would mean each headlight would have its own wire going from the relay to the headlight with no splicing.

    The relay is a 4 pole relay. Which should be just fine for fog lights.
