As far as how I did the wiring setup, I used a "single pole, double throw" switch to go from hi to lo beam and it also has an off position. I used this in conjunction with the on/off switch already on the bike. The on/off switch becomes a master switch to control the headlight and taillight and the SPDT switch for the headlight only.
Basically what I did was re-route the existing wire that controls the headlight to the input of the SPDT switch. The SPDT switch had 2 output wires which I wired to the high and low filaments of the headlight. Simple as that.
The brakelight was activated by a hydraulic switch on the rear brake only. If I remember right, it receives power from the wire that makes the low taillight filament on all the time. The output was then wired to the high filament of the taillight. I also wired the illuminated licenseplate bracket to the wire which supplies to the low filament as well. I know I called BajaDesigns for help with my wiring and they were very helpful, even when I called back for the 3rd time in an hour. I'll double check my info when I take pics and make corrections if I made a mistake above.
