    So instead of hard wiring them can you use something like this to make it plug and play? Also the resistor what is the complete value? 1/4 watt, 20 watt? Need just a little bit more information. I also might use 4 flux LEDs would that change the value of the resistor?

    Those will work for getting power, as long as you don't mind the socket still in there. Where did you get those? I would like to get some

    I got a tail light bulb for my Triumph from them. It's cool because when you hit the brakes, the white light for the license plate stays the same brightness. It has a row of clear LEDs at the base. It's a 'motorcycle 1157' LED bulb.
