LED Tail light and Rear Light Monitor Light
I converted my 85RS to a scrambler. One change was the replacement of the stock tail light assembly with a LED running/brake/license light combo. My issue is the rear light monitor light in the instrument cluster won't go out when the front and rear brakes are used. I am guessing the LEDs aren't drawing enough power. I can always pull the bulb, but I like that monitor. It has drawn my attention to rear light problems many times. What is the solution? My knowledge of electronics is limited. I can do very basic soldering; so, I could put a transistor of some sort on one of the rear light wires if I knew which wire and which transistor.
