If so then all you have to do is take one wire from each bulb and tie them together to make 2 wires. 1 positive and 1 negative. Wire it to the 2 contacts that are in the stock connector.
Another thing. Replace the stock wire and connectors on the blitz. It is junk. Go to a house lighting store and buy new connectors from them. Acerbis wants $15 for one connector. I got both for $8 at a local low voltage lighting store. And its way sturdier.
You can also replace the bulbs with 50watt bulbs to get way more light outta it. I called Acerbis and they said that it will handle up to 50 watt bulbs.

Well I have a Baja HP on my old DR650, and it was plug in. I tried to install an old monster dual headlight from acerbis on my little XR200, and it would have required a lot of work in the rewiring dept. I'd have to see the wires side by side with the WR's. I would have figured it's plug in, but who knows? I thought about getting one of those too, but I also like the Polysport Husky replica light too.
I like this headlight
Is this the Husky replacement light you are describing?
Where did you get it? I wonder if it fits on my DRZ??

Do the same for the three remaining wires.
That blade crimp connector should plug right into your stock headlight plug.
Your right the stock wires are junk. But the lights are just 12v low voltage halogen lights just like what is found in home low voltage lighting setups. I couldn't even figure out what I was supposed to do with the hardware they sent me
If you pull the bulbs out you will see that the bulb plugs into a little round ceramic connector with 2 really cheep wires sticking out. Those wires will break off.
Replace that entire connector with one from a lighting store. The one I found was way more durable and 1/4 the price of what Acerbis wanted for a replacement. The problem that I had was the wires broke off of the ceramic connector.

My Acerbis directions where trash and I didn't even have get any connectors with it.
I did get many compliments on it tho, and it does get bright.
I just went night riding for the first time. It rocked!
Untill your dying battery (strapped to your back) is out of juice. Then you got about 20min to make it back to camp. Thank goodness for a couple of Banshees and their high-beams!
