2006 Ironhorse Brake light

Hi Guys:
I have a 2006 Texas Ironhorse chopper and have lost two brake lights due to the bracket that attaches it to the fender breaks. I would like to eliminate it and just use the run lights as a brake light. On my brothers 2008 ironhorse chopper it works that way. He also lost the rear brake light but didn't have to replace it because the run lights work as brake lights also.. In my opinion looks much nicer without the brake light on the fender. Just wondering if anyone has a schematic to help with this .

Thanks

Doesn't seem like that would be hard to setup...what kind of bulbs does yours have in it?
you would have to have a socket for a two filament bulb....why don't you take a look at his and see if it has that setup or if it is something he did himself..let us know if it has two filament bulbs in it....or yours...
if not you will have to run more lights..

Thanks for your reply..
It has led tail lights. I have measured the voltage and in run mode the leds have 5 volts. When the signal is applied it is 12 volts . as it flashes on and off it alternates between 5 and 12. the brake switch also has 12 volts when either the front or rear brake is applied .The problem is if I attach the brake switch wire to the rear led it will work as long as you don't use the signals.. When the signal is applied it won't flash because the 12 volts is present from the brake if it's applied. A relay might be the answer but hoping someone might have already did this..The 2008 I mentioned is a bit different in that the signal has priority over the brake light .. Doesn't seem to be that way on the 06..

Thanks

The fact that it is electronics circuitry really complicates the situation..that sounds like something that has to be manufactured that way..sorry it used to be simple....I ran my running lights LED..strips under the bike invisible except at night...maybe someone else can come up with an idea...

Badlands makes this module that makes the LEDS split functions it replaces the factory TS module. I have used it when rewiring AIH bikes.

If it has dual element LED lights you might be able to just wire them with your existing TS controller but most LEDS are just single element

Yes, these are single element leds.. I will see if I can track down the module you mentioned from Badlands.

Thanks for your help !
