hooking up mini hallogen lights?

i have a pair of 12 v blue bright fog lights and i am going to put them on the part between the front fenders. The wiring for them is each light has a ground loop wire and a white positive that has a male end that plugs into a single wire that would then go to the main light power.Both light plug go into that one wire. I am currently do not have a headlight on it so can i jus wire it into that wiring. How would i go about doing this.
blasterboy has them i think has the same kind i do. here a pic from blasterboy i found this is exactly what i want to do to mine.

yeah you can wire the fog lights into the stock headlight plug.

the next question you should look at is: can the stator run the two lights without any problems

The blaster lightbulb has both a high and low beam filament inside it. One of the wires is the ground, and the other two wires for the stock headlight are each used to power the high and low beam. You'll probably want to hook the lights up to the high beam wire.

Before you hook them up, you might want to look on the fog lights to see how much power they need. I think the max power the stock stator on a blaster can safely put out is around 60 watts. Personally I'd take the stock light over those anyday.

they work good

i hooked mine in through the high beam switch

in that picture, the ugly green wire has a coupler that 1 wire from each light hooks into and then the green wire is converted into just one so you can hook it into the high beam switch. the other wires from the light goes to ground.

I forget which wire is which, but I wired it for one of my driving lights aimed lower, on the low beam side, and then the other was aimed upwards. When on high beam they both would be on. Mine were 25 watts each, they worked adequate to get me home. I didnt leave at night, but could get home at night on familiar trails.
