confused on blinker/running light

Ok. So i realize my bike has rear turn signals on the front so its only two wire after i installed my dual headlights everything was fine then today only one running light upfront would work and no running lights in the rear. However they all blink correctly. So the two loose wires i located were placed with the blinker wires now everything works but the loose wires were not hooked up when i first got the bike and everything worked before.

question am i suppose to have running lights in the rear?

I read you need a diode to turn a two wire to blinker and running lights but i didnt peal all the shrink wrap to see it there is a diode or not.

Question is it possible there isnt a diode?

I am so confused and dont want to burn up any switches or fuses so any assistance is appreciated.

No running lights on rear, only the front signals are running lights.

Can anyone send me a link with idiot instructions to fix my blinker wiring problem. Ive blown two fuses thinking it will not be bad to have rear running lights and now im pulling out my hair....i cant figure out how to not have the rear running lights on. Either ill have front and rear running lights and my blinker works or ill have front running lights and only back blinkers. Is this where that diode comes in. The two links that are on here have me lost as crap. One looks like i underatand it but the words are blurred...please help me #bangingmyhead

I read threw florida law and it says nothing about running lights so i temporarily fixed my cituation.

It did say i needed a headlight during the day and when i wired the relay for my double headlights is there a special way to have one on with the low and two with the high switch while using one relay or will i need two relays ... one for each switch

No more running lights.i plan on putting on some white led's so i glow. Well i figured out why i was blowing fuses. The wattage was too high and the wiring melted together inside the socket melting both blinker housings....on a good note i fixed the dual head light with a extra switch and a relay so im excited to use them tomorrow night. Pics in the morning.
Good Morning wrist twisters,
Carl

The rear blinkers are NOT able to be used as running lights
