Thank you, @RC4MAN, forgive me being a bit fick, so looking at your diagram, you're saying I should find connectivity between the Earth and Main, Earth and Dip, but not between Main and Dip? So the one which has connectivity with both of it's pals is Earth?
You'll read resistance through all 3 because of the common earth. You're gonna need to measure. For example....Thank you, @RC4MAN, forgive me being a bit fick, so looking at your diagram, you're saying I should find connectivity between the Earth and Main, Earth and Dip, but not between Main and Dip?

I can check that with an Ohmmeter before I wire it up.
Yes it does, thank you Jim.This help?
Yes, that is exactly the problem - three spades and I pulled them all off. Was worried that if I connected them WWR the bulb would blow or something. But it looks like the l/h terminal, which I'm calling A, is generally earth/ground.I'm assuming your dilemma is that you have 3 individual wires rather than a 3 prong plug
No question is Stoopid. Unless you are Forest Gump maybe.Okey dokey, time for that stoopid question.
As work continues apace on rewiring the Bullet - heck, if I do one wire a day it'll only take a month - it now seems a bit rash that I pulled all three wires off the headlamp. Wish I had took a photo first 'coz I don't know what damage I might do if I wire them up wrong. If the Main and Dipped wires are WWR, well we're back to when the bike failed MoT test due to beam pattern - that was just a matter of borrow a screwdriver, swap two wires over, Bob's yer uncle.
But with all three off, will there be a risk of blowing the bulb if I hook 'em up wrong, esp the Earth wire? That might be Ground in N America?

So is there any way to tell by looking which terminal is which? Is there a convention?
Can't see anything on the bulb holder . . .
As work continues apace (yeah, right) to tidy the Bullet's wiring:
Wiring looking good. Wish I had the patience to rewire.
