    Hi Bornfree,
    I picked up a set of these. How do I tell which wires are the aux circuit?

    I'll share my solution with you as well. My solution: Very Cheap. Very Easy. Very Bright.
    I just wanted something to help me be seen by other drivers that would look more like original equipment rather than an add-on.
    I noticed it must work well as most drivers move over on the open road to let me pass as I assume they don't like me in their rearview mirror ... even on a bright sunny day
    Picked these up at Wal-Mart for less than $10 USD and mounted them to the base of my 2016 GT mirror stalks running the wires inside to my aux circuit.
    I like this solution! Can't see where/how you ran the wires from the lights on the stalk to get inside. How did you do it?
    There's nothing like looking when you're trying to find something.

    On my 2016, there r 3 mounting bolts for the turn signal stalks. I simply loosened all three enough to lift the stalk up from the base and feed the wire underneath. No modification or drilling of any kind was required.

    I used the manual to identify the proper fuse on the fuse panel. Then I released the fuse panel housing enough to access the wire behind that fuse (it wasn’t easy … not much slack there … but you can do it). And then I used a wire-tap connector to tap into the wire without cutting it and the other wire just needs any “ground” location that is convenient. But since it is an LED (never had to worry about this with incandesents) you must ensure you have the power wire for the light ... test it directly on the positive battery terminal to be sure.

    I'm also noodling over this. I'm wondering about these: HyperLites white running lights mounted on the mirror stalks. They are pricy, but cheaper that wheel mounted systems. I've used their brake lights on all of my previous bikes and know it is a high quality, long lasting product.

    THoughts?
