A couple years ago I had the dealer install the LED saddle bag spoiler lights. When I got it back they were wired to th accessory switch so if I had the key on the first position to use the radio the spoiler lights were on. They're wired for brake and running lights but not turn signal. I complained to the dealer about the accessory and told them I wanted it wired for turn also. They said they couldn't do it. It's far above my pay grade to do it myself. Is there anyone here who knows if my request is easily done or not?

It's doable.  Need to find left/right rear turn signal light wires.  Under the seat, big plug for all back lights.  Then will need to run the wire from left spoiler to left turn, right spoiler to right turn - splice each one.

Are your rear turn signals also running lights?  If not will need to get that done first.  Plug and play, plus that will tell you where the turn signal wires are.

Your dealer is lazy, this is not that hard but it helps to have someone around who has one it before.

That's what I thought. My bro in law has a career in 12v systems and he could do it too.

The saddlebag spoiler lights actually don't had a turn signal function the way they're commonly hooked up to stock wiring.  Most automotive rear lights fire the turn signal and the brake light over the same wire.  The bikes do not.  Separate feed for brake light, running light and turn signal.  Since the the spoiler lights are only wired for two function you can't get all three operations.  Unless....

Just plug in one of the Badlands Illuminator modules.  It takes the inputs for all three functions and spits them back to the rear to share turn signal functions piggybacked on the existing wiring.    Find the right one for your bike (for example) here:
