Would I need to install a female quick connector on my R1200RT wiring OR I guess I could just cot and solder it?
Presently I just use bare connectors as my plastic has long disintegrated (even had to cut 2 inches off the brown wires and solder it to the connector on one plug as the copper wiring was disintegrating and only making occasional contact).
I like the idea of NOT having HOT and GROUND capable of touching during replacement - never been a problem so far - but just don't like the thought of any potential of a short) - so this thread gives me some (low cost) options (as $100 for the two connectors was a bit rich for me).
Does it matter if the TWO brown wires are on TOP or BOTTOM (I have them on the bottom) of the H7 Bulb? Where do these two brown wires go?


If you can already connect your bulbs,I don't see why you would need any modification to these.
One end (Male) is like the h7 bulbs which will connect to your existing wiring (female)and the other (female) is where your bulb will now be connected to.

That is correct. You'll just plug your existing 2 copper colored connectors onto the end of the black plug shown in the above picture, then plug the blue end onto your bulb. You can fit the excess wires under the black twist-on cap with no problem. I would use real or liquid electrical tape or something like Rescue Tape just to seal off the connection of your bare clips first.

I LIKE the brown (ground) wires on the bottom. It appeals to the OCD part of me...

But I know it really does not matter to the H7 bulb. Might make a difference if you ever change to an LED or HID. Change it then, if needed.
