Yup, thats the best and simple way to do it. No extra module to fail. The Triple Whammy makes the turn signals work as brakes, turn and run. This method only makes it run and turn. Im fine with Run and turn only. I will be doing it this method.What I did:
Took an 1157 socket - I used the stock sockets from my front turn signals since I have a light bar installed.
Pulled the socket out of the turn signal stalks, put in the new socket, then routed, soldered and heat shrunk the wires accordingly.
Soldered the stock rear connecters to the new socket. Ground to ground, and used the Bright/high power wire of the socket to the stock connector.
Tie in the 3rd wire (low power wire) into the tail light/ running light.
Put on a set of red lenses that I had on my VN750.
cost = almost zero.
***YES***Just an FYI; in some jurisdictions you need to change the rear running light lenses to red instead of orange. You'll notice on bikes that have turn signals in the back as running lights 'by default', they run red lenses.
I initially got my lenses from here:What red lenses are you guys buying?
I also used the SM3 it works well. Changed my lenses to red (order 2 sets by mistake so if anyone needs one let me knowKisan SM3 signal minder. This provides rear running lights, brake flash, auto signal cancel, 4 way flashers. Simple install no wires to cut.
You can get red lenses on eBay for about $12.
