worried this is a troll because there is no information on what kinda bike but i'll give it a shot.



is the light case grounded? i don't understand how it can only have 2 prongs and a high beam. also a simple test light will tell you which is which.

Well it's a cx500 custom and the light gets a lot brighter when the case is grounded but only the high beam works but if I hook up the old headlight both work thanks

If you can show us a picture of it or a link to where you got it that would help. Normally wires retain the same colors. There may be a big chance that you got a single beam light. Or it really does ground off the bucket.
