That’s how I run mine constantly, Tim, but some US states dictate that there should be no null between hi & lo beams, so Honda fitted a different dimmer switch whereby the centre detent caused both hi & lo filaments to be energised as the switch passed through; ergo 70W of consumption, as opposed to...
