if its a stock setup then no, you don't, just hook up the low beam (in my experience, the high-beams are usually aimed too high, but your lense may be better positioned than my polisport one) unless of course you want it as a (see and be seen" trail safety thing, in which case rig up teh high beam, other riders will see you easier.

There's no wire going to the high-beam side of that bulb. If you need a light (for safety) just take the plug apart and swap the low-beam wire with the high-beam wire, assuming half the bulb works still. An 06' Ford F-250/350 bulb will work also. I put a silver star bulb in my 06. Same bulb.
