Change "done correctly" to "splicing the black into the yellow/red, but leave the yellow/red connected to the JB" and I'll agree. :) Every schematic I've seen indicates that the removal of the yellow/red wire from the JB removes the ground path for the primary coil of the headlight relay, requiring the blue-wire mod to be done to get your headlight back.
You may be right, and I'm not able to study the diagrams at the moment, or review this thread.

I already had the Blue Wire mod done when I did the Two-Wire.

My position has been to take as much away from the JB as possible, I would sell the bike before keeping the headlight relay.

Keeping the JB relays in operation is just asking for trouble later.

I did this yellow /black. red /black cut from J.B.and joined togather. If I do not want to do the blue wire mod ? Do I want to connect these 2 wires back to the cut yellow /black ??
Yes, connect the spliced wires back to the yellow/black connection on the JB.
I heartily agree with Spockster that the blue-wire mod is the better alternative. ESPECIALLY when chasing gremlins, since these relays are known failure points that can cause grounding issues.

Doing the blue wire mod. when moving the blue wire out of the plastic connection is it best to push it out with a small screw driver or can it be pulled out successfully? Is cutting it and sealing the ends an option? thank you.

There's a tiny lock tab on the copper spade. I use a sewing needle to push the tab, then the spade slips right out. Paper clip was too large.

I know it’s been a while since this thread was active but I’m hoping someone can clarify for a newbie (aka me) I’m going to be installing a mossfit r/r so if I do this two wire mod as well as the blue wire mod, that will take care of any issues caused by the fact that the stator and r/r run only to the battery now correct?

For the Blue Wire mod...

Be sure to clip the stator wire that runs to the junction box for the headlight relay. That stops AC voltage going into the junction box.
