Need help integrating my turn signals into my rear tail light on 02' F4i

I would like to have my tail light blink as my turn signals in addition to being my running lights and brake lights. But I am having a hell of a time doing it. I am very familiar with electronics and its really frustrating me that I cannot do this.
I have heard that you can use a uhaul tail light kit to get the job done but I thought why spend the money if I can do it myself with relays that I already have. So hopefully someone out there has already tried the same thing and can tell me what the hell to do. I know there are numerous kits on ebay but I dont want to spend the $50 plus for the tail light. I am happy to have the stock red tail light. (my bike is red)

On a side note, a second project I was going to try is to add leds to the rear passenger pegs. I have seen them on bikes before and they look pretty good. I want to make sure they will be bright enough or they wont worth the time. Have any of you installed them yourself before? If so what volt and amperage leds have you used?

Sincerely,
Frustrated TWF Member

You can buy just the integrator if you have 2 indepdant bulbs on each side. But the truely pimp setup is the whole LED kit. $50 ain't a bad price here on ebay

I found just the board at my local dealer before for like $30.

On this to it yourself setups... I have no idea where to send you on the passenger peg setup. I have seen it done before on here... try searching on here.

Yeah thats not bad. I should pick those up and not mess with anything else. Ive already spent so much money lately. ie new undertail and tire hugger which both still need to be painted. I told myself I wasnt going to spend anymore. But Ill think about it.
Thanks for your help

You don't have to get it from u-haul. You can get that anywhere.... its nothing more than a adapter for a trailer. I ran one before on my 9R.

It tells you... but simply hook up your tail lights on the output, then hook up the brake,run, and turn signla inputs... it does the rest.

It works good. I like it. It came with everything I needed. But I am also installing an undertail and it doesnt have the mounting brackets that the stock undertail has. So I need to figure out how to install it. But Ill get it.

Hopefully Ill get pics up soon.
