I had done this before the wiring kit was available. Just needed the terminals ( got them from Corsa Technic) and wired them into my trailer isolator brake wire. The correct bulbs were already on the bike.

Better still; put the Honda Spoiler on the bike and wire that to function as a Run/Brake Light.

Agreed. In my opinion you can't have too much rear lighting. I took it a few steps farther and went with the Kuryakyn LED set up on the bottom fender tip and a Hondaline brake light /running light in the spoiler.

That is a good idea but the issue I have with it is if you need to remove the tail light from the bike for what ever reason you can't without cutting the wires. It should have a quick connect close to the tail light that can be disconnected in that case. I plan to do that mod plus I already have LEDs in my signal housings for added lighting. More lights the better

Here is a link to Electrical Connections website with the tail light mod wires.

If you want to build or have me build a light bar, that is a lot more difficult and we would need to use the PM system or emails.
