Only five months late responding ...
After this mod, the headlight failure indicator light will never come on.
The high beam indicator will always come on when the toggle switch is high, even if the high filament is burned out.

This is a really quick mod, just unhook the connected from the RLU side, and jump the blue and blue/yellow wires together. This allows the circuit to be complete. I have removed the RLU altogether at this point.

I did this mod a long time ago. If my headlight burns out at night (and I rarely ride at night) I know to immediately switch to the other beam. I also have a toggle switch installed on the high beam, so that I can turn the headlight off and have enough power to use my electric gloves.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
