headlight bypass on starting

Triumph Trophy mailing list
I have a 1996 Trophy 900 and would like to bypass the headlight when starting to save my battery.  I am guessing that this is an old subject but I couldn't find anything on the group page related to this.  This could be my Yahoo skills are not up to par but anyhow-if there is a circuit I can put in any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  Steve

Hi Steve, Your '96 900 should have the headlight cutout relay already installed. Take off the seat and look at the starter relay in front of the battery. There should be a small brown wire attached to the relay. The wire goes to a relay up behind the headlight fairing. Maybe the relay isn't working. It looks just like the low beam and high beam relays. Greg
