Ray and Aman think alike (possibly twins from different mothers)

I would suggest you reroute / consolidate all wires into one and enter the fairing behind your Aux lights, (Like Rob did). It will also give you a much cleaner look.
This is how I did mine. The spiral loom is just from the exit from the fairing to the entrance into the light housing. It not only protects the wire but keeps the wiring standing proud instead of getting slack and rubbing something (it may be hard to tell in the photo but it doesn't touch any paint. Grommets protect the wires where they penetrate the fairing panel.

I got it worked out. Talked to a friend riding with a similar setup and he helped me get it straightened out.
