Got the connectors today from Eastern Beaver.  They were shipped from Japan on Frida.  Not bad, 3 Day delivery from Japan to Michigan.  I wonder how long it would take for them to be delivered to the UK?

Yup, those are Sumitomo connectors on the Trophy - at least I have identified the majority of them as Sumitomo connectors that Eastern Beaver stocks in various styles & number of pins.

Now to wire up two relays to supply the current to the high & low beams.  i don't like all the headlamp current going through the handlebar switches.  And if I can find a way to mount some spotlights, I'll wire those up too, maybe using a Skene LED controller.

You did notice that Eastern Beaver sells pre-wired H4 relay kits, right? About halfway down on this page?

Thanks for the heads-up about that.

Yes I am aware of the pre-wired kits.  I'd rather do my own since I'm planning on using the original connectors and I already have the Panasonic relays and other stuff I'll need to do the job.  And if I install the LED spots, I'll also add a few small toggle switches so I can run the spots only on the slab during the day without the headlamps on and also be able to turn off the spots & headlamps when the bike is running or ignition is only on when on the center stand, etc.

I like using those small Panasonic relays with the molded-in tabs, BTW.
