luggage rack light goes where?

The bike I have now has a OEM luggage rack with a light bar .I would like to know where they connect and are they running lights or break lights?

Wiring is inside the topcase lid and it is a brake light.

I assume that the led brake light, rear speakers, trunk light and heated backrest wiring are bundled together and pass from the topcase lid down thru the topcase bottom and find their way to their respective terminals under the seat(s)etc.

Yep, just remove the Mirror "hatch" (OK, door) assembly, and you're in.
