I was under the impression that it was less then legal to have anything but red lights facing backwards and be constantly on. hence the whole search for red lenses. But essentially, that was my plan. get a set of fronts, mount them to the rear, and replace the lenses.
In my state, it is very illegal to use amber lights in the rear for anything but turn signals and hazard flashers. Using them as running lights will get you a ticket real quick. I have clear lenses with amber bulbs on my Honda Rebel, clear lenses could be used as running lights if you had RED bulbs. Harleys seem to be the only bikes I've seen red rear turn signal/running lights on. They could also be wired up as extra brake lights.
As far as the information being outdated, the Vulcan 750 is outdated (nothing wrong with that), and virtually nobody is making aftermarket parts for it anymore. Many things that used to be available, including most of the Kawasaki accessories, are no longer available. There is very little new information on the VN750, it's been the same bike for 22 years. I was thrilled to be able to get the TOC manual cam chain tensioners, they have drastically increased the life of my engine. I suggest getting some before they quit making them.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
