Default How to connect add-on run/brake tail lights

I am going to connect DOGZEYES LED light from Radiantz that replaces OEM turn light bulb and combines turn / run / brake light in one. So, I have two wires (one for run, one for brake) that I need to connect somewhere on the board of the tail light (I guess). Can anybody recommend the best way of doing it? The ground wire wil be common with the turn light so I need to connect only the two wires mentioned above. Thanks in advance!

pull off your tail light you will see them... if you have a little pod or something to hook up, if you pull your battery and battery box, right behind it is the wire harness for the back of the bike, just look in your service manual to see what plug numbers are the one you need and splice it in right there!

Where do you suggest to splice the wires? At the frond end (behind the battery) and drag the wires to back or at the back end? I was afraid that there is not enough space at the back end to hide the junction into the tail light so it will be exposed to mud.

Monte, not knowing what year we are working with..............
there is an unused 3 hole AMP connection inside the tailight
on the 006 and up Dynas (lower left in the diagram below).

If you want a nice clean job, you can use this.......

I had to splice the whole wiring harness in the rear tail light so there is plenty of room back there.

Thank you, Mudpuddle!
That is exactly what I was hoping for! I've noticed this unused AMP (on my Dyna 08) but couldn't find the purpose of it and wiring diagram in the Service Manual. I'm gonna use it!
