    weird things inside my new headlight bucket

    this is the same headlight spaceman has on his cm400t, except with a chrome visor on it.

    theres a row of two sets of five screws... they arent grounds because theyre surrounded by plastic with no metal directly connecting it to the bucket.

    what the hell is it for? can i use this for anything or can i just pull it off to save space?



    honk if youre horny.

    terminal strip = junction block = Need to make any connections in the headlight bucket?

    Strip the wires back 1/4" or so, solder the ends so they're solid, slide the wires you'd like to join under the same screw, tighten screw, wallah!

    May not be the most weather tight connection. Spooge some dialetic grease or clear silicone(if you're sure) on it when you're done.

    Or tear it out and use the factory plugs if you have no reason not to.
