Side marker lights (turn signals always on)

I'd like to have the turn signal lights always on and still be able to use them as turn signals.

Anyone do this mod to their vstrom? Anyone know how? Instructions?

Check your state DOT/DMV laws first. It might be illegal on a bike, especially with amber signals.

[SIZE="2"][SIZE="1"]DL650K7 - Blue
Madstad Bracket = Awesome!
Emgo Mirrors = Work and Look Great
Cortech Sport Tailbag = Very nice
Cortech 10L Tankbag = Another nice piece
MSR Dominator ATV Hi Bars = Give the bike a whole different feel
Suzuki Gel Seat = Best so far but still not 100% for me
Bestem (Ebay) 2012 42L Top Case = Best bang for the buck!
Modified V-Stream Windshield = Works well
Zumo 550 = Brilliant!!![/SIZE][/SIZE]

You can try this..

I got the 3-wire (running light and turn signal) version of the Lockhart Phillips flushmount 3 signals. Two of the wires connect to the turn signal wires just like usual. The 3rd connects to any wire with power when the ignition is on, such as headlights, tail lights, etc. A posi-tap connector works great for that.

You can see the running lights and my diy leds-in-mirrors signals here:

2009 DL650A - sold

2005 DL650 - dearly departed
"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller
