Default Wiring Question....2008 XLN

I'm going to be installing a third brake light (LED Strip like Mene Gene did). Does anyone know what wires to tap into (under the seat I imagine) to have activation for the brake light only, no running light?

Thanks

If I'm not mistaken, there should be a set of three wires going toward the rear fender underneath the seat (1 for each side rear signal and 1 for the license light)
The wires for the signals route along the inside of the rear fender...

Yeah...that sounds right. Do you know which wire to tap into for brake light only?

Or, buy the service manual. It has really nice fold-out pictures in the back that show all the wires and tells you which colors go where.

I tried to pm Gene about the installation and where he got his strips for front and back, but his box is full!

Gene! Where are you?
