I never liked the idea of relying 100% on a single tailight on my motorcycle to make me visible at night. It seems like too much is riding on that single lightbulb. I noticed a friend on a Heritage who had the Run, Brake, Turn Signal kit installed. In addition to his fender tailight the left and right rear signals acted as run and brake lights. They also blink to signal a turn. The three lights all with red lens caps give the motorcycle a little more substance at night in comparison to a motorcycle with only one red taillight.
The Harley-Davidson Auxiliary Brake/Run/Turn Signal Coversion Kit Part# 69462-06A only costs $59.95 and does not change the look of your bike other than changing the signal lens caps from yellow to red. The installation is a piece of cake. For the added safety I think this one is a no brainer.
To install the module you remove your seat and locate where the Main Harness connects to the Rear Fender Harness. This was easy on my bike because the wires had labels identifying them. I disconnedted them from each other and plugged them into the module so that the module was in between the Main Harness and the Rear Fender Harness. I changed the signal lens caps from the stock yellow ones to the new red ones. Reinstall seat. Installation complete!
I purchased the last kit in stock at Mike’s Famous Harley-Davidson during the Big Biker Weekend in July. I’ll buy another for Diana’s motorcycle as soon as possible.
