Headlight Wiring Help!

Hello all! I am in the middle of building a cbr250r streetfighter bike very similar to the Greggs custom bike (most of yall are probably rolling eyes at this point) I installed an integrated tail light. That went in fine, and everything works. But I bought a classic style 8" round headlight with integrated turn signals, kind of as a temporary headlight until I find a different headlight setup I really want to use, whether it be custom, or one already in production.

Anyways, I am trying to figure out a headlight wiring harness I can use with the new headlight.

Here is the wire setup for the light (all the connectors are the ones like the connectors for the tail light)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Headlight: Blue for Negative, Green for High Beam Positive, White for Low Beam Positive.

Turn Signal: Black for Negative, Red for Positive , Green for Ground.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am looking for a pigtail that will connect to the stock connector. Any of y'all who have done this headlight setup please chime in, or anyone who can point me in the right direction on what to buy/make. If you are going to comment and tell me I bought the wrong bike, please just keep those to yourself. I bought this bike from a buddy with already broken fairings, and considered new fairings, but have always wanted to build a naked bike, so I went that route.

Thanks!

I think it will be hard to find a mating connector, and even harder to crimp the pins or sockets and install them in the mating connector. I think individual insulated bullet or spade connectors on each wire would work well and be foolproof. I'd install them at different points along the harness so they weren't all bunched up in one place.

Thanks. I have a box of spade connectors that I can use. I'm new to this sort of stuff. So the stock connector has only 6 pins on the inside. The headlight I am using has 9. Low beam positive, High beam positive, and a negative wire, and then 3 connectors for the turn signals. I need to figure out how to be able to run those. Would I just use the spade connectors with the little piggyback tab?

Thanks.

I prefer these type of insulated flat blade male/female disconnects:

Ace 16-14 AWG Fully Insulated Male Disconnect - Terminals - Ace Hardware


Ace 16-14 AWG Blue Fully Insulated Female Disconnect - Terminals - Ace Hardware


Here are the colors of the turns signals. I believe Green is common (negative/ground) in all cases.











Essentially, the right turn positive is Light Blue (Lb) and left is Orange (O).

Sure. By the way you'll need a crimp tool for the terminals, something like this.



You crimp blue terminals with the blue-dotted die, etc.
