There is one good reason NOT to use the parking light wire for the running lights. If you have to leave the bike by the side of the road, or parked for any reason where you want the park lights (small bulb in front, and center bulb in the tail light) on, you would not want the front running lights to also be on, would run the battery down WAY to fast.
I used the low beam headlight wire for my running light conversion, that way they are on when low beam is on, but not if you just leave the park lights on.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
