Signal Dynamics and Custom dynamics, and others offer gizmos that will convert the turn signals to running lights. If you install the Custom Dynamics' 48 LET clusters in the turn signals, as I have, the lights would be steady on all the time and flash off when you use the turn signals. The clusters are very bright and may be more than what you want as running lights. Richland Rick has teamed up with Signal Dynamics and offers an easier to install gizmo. He is a preferred vendor so see if his application will work. Regarding the tail light/stop light: The turn signals use an 1156 SAE base so the whole cluster lights up. They sell these clusters in 1156 base as white or amber LED and you should get amber as some Vstroms have white lens with amber halogen bulbs, and other (older models) have amber lenses where you should use the amber LED cluster. But, the taillight OEM bulb is an 1157 SAE base and it has two halogen elements. The 1156 base cluster uses a pig tail wire connection between the cluster and the base, which screws into the 1156 receptical in the turn signal. The 1157 cluster is a one piece device and you cannot insert in into the hole in the back of the tail light assymb after you remove the bulb. To make it work, as I have, you have to remove the rear fender, use a heat gun to free of the adhesive holding the red lense to the tail light assymb box, break and remove some of the black plastic tail light assymb box plastic to get the 2 large LED cluster disks to fit and reglue the red lense onto the assymb box. The result is much brighter than OEM, brake light and tail light but doing the mod is involved. I needed help and am happy with result. Riding buddy says my tail/brake light is definitely brighter but is also round so only some of the red lens is illuminated. The 48 LED clusters are $25 so this is a mod you have to want to do for the safety aspect. When I hit my 4-way flashers coming into an intersection, so far, all the potentially conflicting operators halt, look again, say WTF, and let me sneak through: I light up light like garbage truck. Riding buddy seeing the effect, installed the clusters in his turn signals but not the tail lights. I have not reduced the higher flash rate because it looks more cop-like.
