hoppy tail light blinker conversion?

Hey everyone, I've exhausted my search options and cant seem to find the thread on how to integrate the blinkers into the brake light. I have the hoppy wire harness, that didnt work, because if i remember correctly i need some sort of flasher too? can anyone help me out on this one?

Thanks a million. I've been riding with no working brake light for a couple weeks and i dont like doing it.

take care Jared

1. It will work without the flasher...you'll just have a faster blink rate.
2. Your visibility from the rear will suffer greatly. I regreted doing mine after coming to this conclusion. I did create a divider between the bulbs to help distingush the signals but it was a weak solution.

I wouldn't recommend this mod to a friend.

I have aftermarket blinkers, and have the blinker integrated with the tail-light as well. It was a fun project (considering the mess I was up against to start...) My 04 came with an after-market flasher. I can't tell you off the top of my head who makes and, and since it's shoved into the tail-end of the frame I'm hoping I don't have to pull it out again soon.

1.) can be fixed with a resistor (heat could be an issue, depending on how much current you are drawing)

2.) I wanted to keep some ambers, but also liked the thought of the blinking tail-light so I went with both. If you are after the same thing, I can probably sit down and draw out a wiring diagram for you if you want. As was stated, some visibility is lost from this setup.
