LED light bar install

Hi everyone. I am installing a 12" light bar on my 07 atv. 500 4x4 sportsman manual shift. The light comes with a relay and it's own switch but I want to eliminate the switch and hook it up to my high beams. Any suggestions on how I can do this is appreciated. Thanks

Will you still have the High beams lights or will the be removed or unplugged?

I would wire from the battery to the relay to the light bar. Then connect the relay switch wire to the high beam power. (The wire that makes the relay click) This way your getting power for the LED directly from the battery and the High beam switch will turn the Light bar on and off. Plus you can still use your factory lights

The gauge wire isn't big enough to just tap into the line somewhere if your still running the factory lights at the same time. It may work but is a fire hazard, fuse blower & wire melting mess.
