here you go

Integrated Tail Light - Ducati 1199 Forum

I don't know if he goes into detail in the thread, but in the comments of one his youtube videos, he mentions having to do a board n stuff.

Has anyone figured out how to build a circuit to do this? I really want a clean tail.

What it will need to do is separate the signals from the turn signal and the brake light so they do not feed back to each other. You will need a series of diodes to do that. They only allow electricity to flow in one direction.

It has been almost fifty years since my electrical engineering course but if my brain is still remembering right you would have to Have the diodes wired so the allowed the electricity to reach the bulb it is powering but not let it feed back to the other circuit. You would need two on each side and they would have to be in series with each circuit. The two would be connected to the brake light in the tail light and then each to the incoming wires for the brake and turn signal. The block would have to be from the light to the power so it would not allow the back flow.

Again it has been fifty years since I took that course but this seems logical to me. Please someone with more recent experience step in here and challenge me if you think I am making a big mistake. Well even a small one too.

Looks like in 50 years you haven't forgotten your basic electronics. It is as simple as putting a doide in series with the new LED circuit... in other words come out of the plug, through the diode and then into the new tail light LEDs. Do the same with the new indicator LEDs and you're there. The only thing to make sure is that your diodes will handle the current of the LEDs you are using. Thats easily calculated using the formula:

Power (Watts) = Volts (12v) x Current (Amps) therefore

Current (Amps) = Power (Watts) / Volts (12v)

Give it a go and try it out on a 12vbattery before connecting it to the bike

I think the bigger problem is that you have to somehow separate the left and right side lights in the tail. I haven't cracked it open, and I haven't seen any images of the light opened up, but i'm assuming it's a circuit board... that would require re-soldering the led's or modifying the board in order to get a left and right side...whereas now, it's only one

You guys get any further with this? I'm curious about this route as I am doing something with plug and play LEDs to mount between the the OEM light and the custom carbon cover found on eBay.
