Thunderbird Headlight Conversion

Hello Gents

I have a 2013 Thunderbird 1600 and want to fit twin headlights - same as the Storm. I have a set of Storm headlights and the sub harness that comes with them. My question is....does the 1600 have a multi plug lurking somewhere under the tank to plug the sub harness into or is the wiring harness on the 1600 completely different to the 1700. Any advice will be much appreciated. Or any tips from anyone who has converted from a single to twin headlights.

cheers

I can' t help you on specifics but have you considered the power draw for twin lights compared to a single? It might be an issue for the ECU.

I haven't actually considered anything so far. I have a wiring harness from a Thunderbird Storm and am currently trying to find out what the differences are between the 1600 and 1700. I wouldn't have thought there was a lot of difference between the 2 bikes given they're virtually the same ?
