wmsonta Spock, you apparently are going to proceed. PM me, I will tell you how to do some thing like you want w/o using the dimmer switch. It is easy and simple.

Jamesoct1990 Or you could get a set of running lights like me. Just got done wiring in some new leds on my homemade highway bar/pegs. They are down low so they work as fog lights by they do show the 20 or so feet where the headlamp doesn't shine. I used to have a set of incanesents by one tore off last fall when I layers her down in the yard, stupid frost. Plus the extra lights make u more visible and look bad ass at night :-)

,,, willing to bet you are not getting full power out of the bulb in this 'center' spot cause of the losses ....
You assume arcing and losses, yet in actuality there is no flickering or dimming.
