Electrical specialist needed

After a few months now, I would like to put some extra light to help the visibility during the day. My K1200GT 2008 has Xenon light. Where can I tap on my extra relay on the xenon to trigger my extra lights together with the Xenon? I will put an extra switch to kill the light during the night but would not prefer to use the standlight as pick up point because than the extra could be used during parking.
Thanks in advance for your help!

You can use this wiring harness to trigger your lights off the bike's parking lights. It simply plugs into the existing wiring harness without cutting anything. It is probably the safest, easiest solution for what you want.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

You unplug the parking light under the front of the fairing, and plug this inline. It will switch on and off with the key like the parking lights do.

So if you want the P3 lights to be on all the time it will work, but it won't trigger them with the brake lights.
