FWIW...Rather than source a matching connector, I replaced both pieces of the two-wire connector with an easily available waterproof auto connector (Deutch).
Laterally unstable unless moving.

I can't find anywhere if the fog lights on the 2018 Tiger 800 (XRX) go out when the main headlight is switched to bright or high beam.  I'd like to know before I buy a relay and use the fog light wiring.

Thanks,

Not on a 2018-19, you have to have the lights switched from DRL only to main headlamps, which means that you end up with headlamps, DRL and Fog Lights running at the same time, you can't run the Fog Lights as DRLs without the main (dipped) headlights, which for me defeats the object.

I turned down the dealer's offer of 360 and will look to get some LED strip DRL lights from eBay at a fraction of the price and wire them in full time (uber-low current draw) through the rear light (always on with ignition).

If you want them as supplementary (auxiliary) lights then that's fine, but "fog" lights they ain't (too high up).
Now available in "Batman"

Thank you for the reply, Dilbert.  I was under the impression that switching the headlight from dipped ( low beam in the USA ) to high beam would turn off the fog lights.  That's how it works in cars, too.   So now I'm not sure what happens.

In any event, I plan to install some LED accessory lights.  I had planned to use the 2018 TIger's fog light circuit, but I think I'll just wire them through a fuse block like I've done on other bikes.  My hope was to take advantage of the unused switch on the left hand switch cluster.   I won't use the bike's fog light switch if it turns off with the high beam, which is when I want the accessory lights at their brightest.
