what happens when you plug it in and turn the bike on?

some bikes don't turn the headlight on until the engine starts, not sure if yours is one of them

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Since you have two bulbs on the original the low beam goes to one and high to the other. Yellow/black is probly ground on both and hi/lo wires are the blue/yellow and the red/black, which is which idk. The drl/angel eye should probly be wired to your parking light wire and the turning indicators are pretty self explanatory. You gotta cut the wires to the bulb sockets and either fit in a new one combining them, crimp female spade connectors at the ends or cut the connector off the new light as well and solder the wires together.

I bet you can pull the high (or low) connector out of one of them, insert it in the other, and have it work without doing any cutting or splicing

Ah, I knew I was forgetting one option. When looked from the front you can see a small slot over the bigger slot where the spade connector enters. By inserting a suitable object, say, a thick needle, piece of copper wiring etc you depress the locking tab down and should be able to pull the connector out. After that you simply push the said connector into the vacant slot of the other connector until it clicks, job done. Oh and before that remember to open the hatch at the back of the connector

Y’all are the best honestly!!!😭😭😭 what about the left and turn signals I know it has two wires ? Would o have to take the positive and connect it to the new head light and find a ground for the negative? I haven’t been working on it for the past day becuase of school and work but im super excited to get back into it and figure it out.

Based on the headlight picture in the first post the turn signals seem to ground through the same ground wire as the driving beams. The turn signal plugs you probly do have to cut out and crimp connectors onto the wires, I couldn't find a '08 650r wiring diagram but based on a lot of other kawi diagrams I looked at you're likely to find a grey and a green wire, which is which seems to depend on the bike in question. You do not however need the turn signal ground wires anymore as the blinkers use the common ground of the headlight unit.

the ground for the turn signals is common with the headlight. Figure out which wire going to your current turn signal is hot and run that to 3 and 5.

Alright guys thank you guys for all the info! Do I have to connect all the ground wires from all the connections to the ground on the new headlight? If so I think I should be able to make it work I just want to make sure 100%! I’ll be working on it tonight once I’m done with school and work so I’m excited for that.

One will be enough the ground wires are interconnected inside the loom anyway. That`s a full LED unit right? wire gauge should not pose issues using just one ground wire but I`d still use one of the headlight ground wires instead of the indicator wires as it`ll probly be thicker, however if your original turning indicators are of incandescent bulb type you probly have to replace your indicator relay with a LED type relay otherwise your blink ratio will be too high.
