wiring in a low/high beam headlight

Anyone that has gone through the bother of doing this mod themselves?
I am going to bed now, with the problem still unresolved. i hate when that happens!
ps I am wiring this AC rather than DC.

I used a switch unit as used on gas gas trials bikes. I also wired an ac horn and brake light too, as the switchgear has the button.... Also, if you look at the plug on the back of the headlight bulb, you will find that it flips open, and you can slide in another terminal for the low beam. I got one from a car headlamp socket, and it slid right in.
I used the yellow wire as common "power in", the switch has a separate wire out for the tail light, so as not to link hi and lo beams.
The horn is wired with the live constant, and switches the ground.
the yellow wire was split to feed lights in, horn, and brake light.
I bought the switch from a local off road bike shop JAM Sport. Farnham, Hampshire UK.
It makes a very neat setup.
