Hello again!

Would anyone know how these connect in a 2000 Vulcan 500EN? I just wonder how it would know I'm turning vs not turning.

I just got the bike so am not ready to throw hundreds into lights (I'm already getting a new headlamp. Recommendations appreciated!) so this seems like a great $15.00 alternative for some added visibility in the time being! (Plz correct me if I'm wrong!)

Yep, can be a nice extra for visibility.
I see this can serve as DRL and turn light. Well, you will need to strip a bit of turn signal wires and then solder these lights to them, so whenever you press turn light switch, both of your turn lights (stock and these from eBay) will work at the same rate and time. As for DRL (white light part), you also need to strip a bit of wire on that small headlight bulb (forgot the type) so when you flick light switch in 1st position, light will come to life along with that small bulb in headlamp and taillight.
But for me that turn signal part would be overkill since there are already nice turn signal lights on Vulcan.
Can't see well on images but these lights should have 4 wires, or 3 if they share same negative wire. Pretty easy mod.

Awesome. That's very helpful.

Can I use a tap splicer like this instead of soldering?

For the wires, I asked the seller what comes with it. They said "You can connect the black wire to negative, and the red wire to positive, the green wire to turn signal lights positive. Just leave the white one not connected ( it is the extra wire for not using )." which now makes more sense with your explanation of where they get attached.
