Might want to check draw on the headlight circuit. It might be to much of a draw. Going down the road with radio playing, turn on high beam, pop goes the fuse, total darkness.

Never touched high beam wire. So PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong ( I'm learning as I go) will it still blow a fuse going down road if I use my high beam. My low beam that I'm spliced into works great

The headlight, both hi and low beam, use the same fuse on every bike I've owned. Most newer cars have separate hi and low beam circuit. Which bike do you have? I would not tap power from the headlight circuit due to safety concerns. If you do not change I would suggest to carry extra fuses. Is you blow the fuse on the road, turn amp off and change fuse, should make it home.

Headlight switch determines which wire is hot. If your bike has driving lights you can tap off that circuit. Don't recommend but would work. Best to install relay connected to battery.

I would suggest to google "how to wire a 4 pin relay". A relay would be the correct way to accomplish your installation.
