One kit is/used to be called the twin-light driver. It has the necessary parts, wiring, and instructions for doing what you want to do. I did it on my '07--worst waste of time of any mod I have ever done.
If you want some help (from a lighting stand-point) for the dipped beam, this mod helps none, IMHO. One has to run the high beam at about 75% or less output when on dipped beam and/or adjust the high beam down and away from opposing traffic, and this hurts your light output when using high beam.
Both lights shine when high beam is selected--this is the stock setup. About the only thing accomplished from running both lights when dipped beam is selected is how the bike "looks".
If one is seriously wanting to increase the light output of the dipped beam, the best solution, IMHO, is to install HID after one has adjusted the dipped and high beams for proper light. I had to adjust both lights on my '07 and '08 a considerable amount to get them shining where they are supposed to shine.
The Twinlight Driver I installed was the original one--made by a company (Ecliptec) in Australia. Looks like they have gone through two upgrades since I bought mine. The one they are selling now is called the Twinlight Driver3. I thought there was some place in the USA that was selling them; however, I could not find any. There is one place in the UK (Triumph Online) that sells them, I believe. I ordered the one I installed from Ecliptec in Australia--no problems. Here is a link to their web site.
