Daylight module ?

Hello People,
is it possible to make some Module for the Daylights ?
The Problem is in Germany i want to use Daylight Leds but the Low said the Headlight must be off by the DL and when i go into the night must the Headlight go on but the DL off.
How can i make this ?

Thanks for Help !

Hi! Welcome to the forum!

What year is your bike? Have you done much electrical work before?

I suspect you'll need a 3-position switch or a toggle that lets you choose between headlight and running light. I'd run the headlight on a relay so the switch doesn't have to carry the considerable current for the headlight.

I have the ZRT00D its 2010 Year. I have only make my Module for the dual light but its a work of 10 minutes to make it on the standard.
What switch can i take to use it like u said me ? I have make a video on youtube how i mean it but can put them here after 10 posts
Its with the photodiode and this turns the light on and off depending on the darkness.

Oh, that seems pretty cool. I'll do some looking around at switches later to see if I can find one that will suit your needs.

Does the Law have that restriction for cars specifically? I know that here in the US, we heavily encourage motorcycles to run headlights at all times.

Yes, in Germany cars and motorcycles have the same law for the daytime running lights.
The headlight must be off when the DRL is on and when the headlight is turned on, DRL must be off.

Ok. I think you could wire a relay to operate the headlights so they will be triggered from the wire that runs the turn signal in your video if you want the switch-over to be fully automated. You're looking for a standard automotive relay, that will have terminals for power, ground, trigger and the headlight.

For my curiosity, is the switch-over brightness adjustable?

I understand the question now, but I'm afraid I won't be much help. I'm sorry.
