I need some help on my Suzuki

Ok so i went over to the suzuki forum to get some help, and they were not very helpful. I bought an HID conversion to put on my wifes KFX400. The lights do not currently work on the quad. When you move the high/lo switch it doesnt feel like it does anything. So I thought I would just pull the power directly from the ignition switch.

Here is a link to the wiring diagram I planned on using the green wire to power the hid.

So if Im pulling power from the ignition can I just get my ground from the frame?

basic starts, power, connections, relays, and switches. grab a multimeter and follow the diagram from the battery to the lights. frame should be ground just check where the neg cable goes from the battery.
side note I did have a similar problem with my 96 miata high beams didnt work unless i used the "flash" mode. had to tear apart the switch and clean up the contacts with some fine sand paper. works great now to get them aimed right oiy

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.

Im actually fine with not having a high/lo switch. I just want to know 2 things.

1 Can I use the green line coming from the key switch as my power (coming out of 17 on the diagram)

2 do I have to connect into a ground line, or can I connect my ground to the chassis



I am not that interested in chasing wires through the quad and figure out why the original system isnt working. The ignition is close to the light. I can easily pull a wire from the ignition if that will work. The negative from the battery appears to just go to the frame (on the schematic). Im pretty sure this will work, I would just like someone with more experience look at it and see what they think

I wouldn't say that I have more experience, but I have run stuff off the ignition wires and grounded to frame and it's worked just fine. I've used this chart to get an idea of how much the wire can handle (doesn't mean the fuse isn't lower).

Thanks for the chart mum, however the HIDs actually use less wattage then the regular lights. The green wire is for the lights anyway it just runs over to the high/lo switch on the handlebars first.
