Well I'm waiting for the TST Halo lights with the halo running lights.
I really want to have running lights.
I found this on YouTube: .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTcDc85d1Q0


and I ordered this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/250554906578?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
I copied this from the Youtube video.

"This will work on all lights led and non led, the Diod i am using is SR560 Schottky Rectifier Diode 5A . any diode should work fine as long as its atleast 2amps so it doesnt burn out, im using a 5 amp"

It worked for him on the video.


I'll see if it works on the R3

If your TST flush mounts are not light while running it means it is wired wrong. The TST video for install reversed the wiring and causes it. Just switch them and you should have blinkers and running lights.

Hey guys.

Our standard LED Flushmounts, when installed correctly, do NOT have a running light feature. As OP stated, he is waiting for our Halo-1 signals to be released. Those units will have a running light function as well as the signal function and will be bike specific.

The attached photo is a little update of where we are with the project as of March 2016. We are working hard at bringing this much anticipated signaling system to the market. We will be launching it as soon as we can, but there is no release date yet so the status on the ad will remain as “Coming Soon”.

Right on TST. No disrespect intended here man, you guys are awesome!!!

Running lights on.........

At the 35 second mark, your tail light and front light are clearly out of sync. You can see the reflection on the floor behind the bike. Never seen that before. What is causing that to happen?

Is the light blinking in the dash?

the off sync is because of the running light option. its running almost a whole loop in the system before the rear gets a signal to flash now that is all.

Getting ready to do this as well.

There are three wires for the OEM front turn indicator lights. Taking a guess here:

1. Ground
2. +12V Ignition Switched On (until turn signal activated - used as running light +12V)
3. +12V (Off until turn signal activated)

So both 2 & 3 above reverse state with each blink from the main relay?

You wired up your fronts to 1 & 2 from above? That's the only way in my mind that this would work... Am I correct?

Thanks!

Hey man don't get all technical on me here lol I am no engineer or electrical guru. Just a guy with a bike.......lol

I used their harness converter to make my connection to the bike. The two leads you plug into the harness converter are just reversed.

When I installed mine, I watched the install video (very helpful). I installed the lights on the fairing, plugged the wires into the harness as directed. When I turned the system on there were no running lights. ???? This was unacceptable to me. I didn't remember seeing anywhere that there would be no running lights, but that doesn't mean it doesn't say it somewhere. So, I took the two wires that I plugged into the harness and reversed them and BAM! running lights and blinkers. I originally assumed they made a simple mistake in the install video, or I messed up. But whatever, I went on my happy way, loving my flush mounts.

Then this post was made and I was like......????.......hmmmmm, it does work.

I have been running them like this since my install and they have preformed perfect. I have run them for a little over 2000 miles so for.

If you plug them in and the blinker works but no running light, just switch them. that's it.

Hope this helps.

No worries. I do this kind of stuff at work. I have the components gathered and if all goes as well, by the time I am finished, they will work as OEM..... (Fronts only) Half brightness all the time and full brightness during the blink and never off.

The rear will remain the same. Off until they come on for indication.

I have my suspicions as to how this bike is wired but my trusty multimeter and a pad of paper will reveal any secrets! :laugh:

I will post up a "how to" when I get done. Might help someone else if they have a good understanding of what wires are doing what!?

I am waiting on some of those plates to fill the hole in the front fairing. I ordered blue ones from Australia so it may be a week or a week.5 before they get here.

Ride safe!

This is EXACTLY what I want to do! I've been doing some research and there is a 'dual' circuit LED...

Now, what about the rear lights??
No need for a dual circuit LED, but if someone makes one it could easily be plug and play. What I am going to do is quite simple and will work on all LED's that are "two wire".

As for the rear indicators/running lights, I am fairly certain that one cannot run amber lights as running lights in the rear of the vehicle. It has to do with the driver following behind you at night. Amber can be quite bright. I do believe one can legally use red turn signal lights as running lights in the rear and blink them for turns.

Awesome - looking forward to what you have in mind!
A little update... I have them working as OEM. Rear turns LED's always off until signal activated. Fronts running ~50% brightness all the time and goes full brightness when signal is activated (never off). Dash light working properly and front/rear/dash flashes are all synced as OEM did.

My LED's up front are currently laying on the floor because I do not have the little mounting plates for the front fairing yet. But... Everyting works! I'll get a proper "how to" done as soon as I get my mounting plates. I did not go with flush mounted LED's. I plan to have it all buttoned up and a short video of them working then I will post up all the details.
