headlight rewiring with relay

When I installed the 80/100 bulb, I used 2 separate relays driven off the stock headlamp socket.  I used 12guage wire direct from the battery (fused of course).  

To me this was the simplest solution rather than try to figure out what kawasaki did.  In doing so, I could always very easily revert back to stock (since none of the original wiring was cut in any way).  My guess the additional relays are for latching purposes and/or to keep the headlight off while cranking.

Good luck.
