They are not ground wires, you need to attach then back to a negative terminal.

this wiring kit looks like the main leads have to be attached to the battery.

You then Plug the correct original plug onto this wiring harness.

It seems to have an actuator on the harnesses. This only switches on when the power is switched on thought the original writing harness on the bike. once it switches on it allows the main terminals of your lighting kit to power the lights.

Those instructions look correct.
Make sure all those ground wires are connected back to the negative terminal of the battery

no you can't do that...

When you wire it correctly there is a little electromagnet on the back of the bulb that moves back to change the light pattern....

The wiring control (actuator) no3. wont work with it setup like that.

Going off the setup..

Connect.

Brown color (no. 16) to both the high and low beam Negative (black wires)
White (no. 17) low beam (H7 plug) you can test what set of wires it is by using a spare light globe and having the bike switched on with the high beam OFF
blue (no. 18) High beam (H9 plug)


If is still doesnt work.

check your fuses. the ones that will blow will be you main light fuse and/or parker light fuse.

when you turn the bike on hold the controller/actuator to your ear. If you hear a click noise when you turn the bike on. Your problem lies with the ballast from there on in.

IF you do hear a click. and no lights.
Double check all negative terminal are connected back to the battery.
See if the wire connecting to the ballast with the silver neck can be reversed by switching the pins.

If still nothing... take a photo of the current setup.

hopefully that helps.

i just had a look at YOUR picture of YOUR wiring diagram.

can you take a picture of all those wires leaving it? i cant see on your photos some of the ends. and there is some black on the carpet that is confusing me.
