Re: Wireing Bates saddle bags

How many lights are on the bags, and where are they placed? Most lights will only be able to do two functions. You might only be able to have a taillight with a brake light, or turn signals. In order to have them operate as both brake and turn signal lights, you might be able to get one of the adapters used for trailer wiring and hook it up.
