You could use the plug from a stock light and attach it to the led wiring.
I need some help trying to install this LED bar to my 04 YFZ. My plan is to rip the oem lights off and just use the oem light switch for the LED bar. Any ideas on how to install the Bar Using The OEM Light Switch? Thank you for your help

Where do you live? I saw the 760 in your name and might be close enough to help.
The Thing is that I need to hook it up directly to the battery so that it gets its power straight from the source. you Think i should just get a whole different switch?

The electrical system on carbureted YFZs is a DC/AC mix. The lights run off of AC (which is why they won't turn on unless the motor is running) and the rest of the electrical is DC. The way the regulator/rectifier is set up you don't get a lot of "extra" DC current to run anything other than the ignition, fan, etc.
Wiring a LED light bar straight to the battery might work short term, but it's kind of the half-ass way of doing things. The "full-ass" way of doing it is to convert to a full DC system by swapping out the regulator/rectifier (from a company like Trail Tech or Ricky Stator) and either "floating the ground" on the stock stator or preferably just buying a new high output stator from one of the companies just listed. A new stator will allow you to run about 100w of accessories (lights, grip heaters, whatever you want) in addition to the electrical needs of the bike. It'll cost you anywhere from $60-$200 depending on which route you go.
I'm putting LED and HID lights on my '05 as we speak and just got the Ricky Stator 100w kit in the mail today. Hope to do a write up on the install soon.
Edit: Whoops, just realized this thread is 3 months old....
