Extra rear signal lights

I installed a set of aluminum panniers on my vstrom and my rear turn signals are a little hidden. I have a pair of LED lights to add to the panniers and before I dive in..where is the best place to tap in. Any help greatly appreciated.

If it were me, I'd do it where the stock turn signals plug in. That way you aren't messing with any of the wiring on the main harness. You could do it such that it was a plug and play. If you are going to remove the panniers, an SAE connector is a durable and affordable way to do it.

sounds good

Will take a peek this weekend. Planned on using weather pack connectors off the panniers and solder and heat shrink at the tap in. Will post when completed. Thanks for the advice.

You might also want to check this out from eastern beaver http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Bi...raketailsignal
pull the plug for the tail/tun signals, plug it in, and you get a set of wires to hook up your new signals.

Their on

Install complete. I used the license plate bracket and some aluminum angle. The lights are the Star Warning DLX-3 and I used the dimmer mode feature as full power is a little crazy. Will post a photo shortly...Eastern Beaver made the job a whole lot easier...
