    I don’t recall having to make any changes. It should be plug and play.

    Nope. It is just a different plug. But my 96 has “parkinglight” the 97–99 okay has normal lights and flash

    Maybe the plug changed for EDM models between 96 to 97? The USDM 2ga and 2gb headlight connector is the same

    Yes I guess you are right. Mine is a japanese spec. With 180 km/h speedo. I will try to rewire and just switch the plugs so it fits. Thanx for all the answers

    If it helps in the rewire, that connector is an NMWP 3FS. Extreme PSI should have it in stock. They will also have the mating connector, if you want to make an adapter. If you post pics of the headlight that you are trying to adapt to, I may be able to ID that connector for you as well.
