Re: 1990 softail rear lights

You have to change the sockets to dual filament to use them as brake /running lights.

I used deuce lights to do just that besides the normal brake/running/directionals.

The red lights function as brake and running lights that I added. It all depends on how you wire them up using the dual filaments.

The modules that are available run very hot being a resistance to accomplish their duty and as a result aren't long lived.
