Stock trunk brake light as running light

At some time over the years, I remember a plug and play adapter that would allow the trunk brake light to also act as running light. Does anyone have any idea where I could find one? Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Stock trunk brake light as running light

I was cheap and just used a relay and a resistor to do the same thing on mine. Brake light signal operated the relay and the resistor was in the circuit for the running light and was shorted by the relay.

Here is a better option for your wethead RT, which might work on the LT as well: Skene Design Motorcycle Visibility Lights
