A 12 amp draw doesn't sound too high to me depending on what size bulbs you are using. If your high beams are 50cp, it sounds about right to me.

But, the original type headlight connectors are famous for grounding/shorting. So there could very well be a problem there if the bulbs are of lower cp. So, I too would recommend taking a good look at them. I've been known to eliminate those connectors and hard/ through wired them.
