    You are however ruddy brave when it comes to applying a saw to rear mudguards. 30mins!. Would have taken me longer than that just to read the instructions and find the spanners.

    The H4 lights go out COMPLETELY when you press starter and has nothing to do with the EB relay kit providing this function - does this as OEM whether or not you have EB kit installed

    * if it looks dim, you may be just seeing the park bulb - however the main headlamp should definitely go out.

    As steel said the park lights are not actually being instructed to dim, but may appear so due to battery sag from starter current

    Also note there is no real need to turn off your headlights manually, as the starter control will do that for you anyway - if your battery is not capable of supplying your headlights for those seconds before actually hitting the start switch, it's already in poor shape anyway!
