This is the beast you need. That will take inputs from your running, turn, and brake lights, and output them appropriately to your MU lights.

Although, IMHO, I'd rather have them as running/brake lights anyway. The factory turn signals are adequate, more brake lights shining in the distracted driver behind you is more important! (In my opinion, anyway)

Ken, mine are running light / turn signals ... dont ask me how to do it, i wanted them to work with no issues, i had a mechanic do the hook up, if i tried myself, it would be like a rolling disco light ... yikes.

Update on lighting for the Mutuaz bags and wiring for anyone that has them. I have a Kuryakyn Triple Whammy 900 classic. I just added these bags and I wired the bags by connecting the ground wire to the mount screw in the bag and one wire from each bag to the turn signal wire after the Whammy. My bags now have running, Brake and turn.
