Hey guys,

I read around and couldn't find an exact answer to this question.

Does running Single Filaments as running lights/blinkers cause them to burn out quicker? I bought a bike second hand and both the back blinkers are setup as running lights. I know the blinkers are single filament (they are now both burnt out) They burnt out probably about a month after I got the bike. I bought the same bulbs again.

I was wondering if it would be ok to leave the current wiring with the single filaments as running and blinkers or should I fix it. And if I need to fix it how should I go about it.

Thanks,

That's the OEM setup. Both front and rear lights/blinkers are setup as running lights.
It's a filament bulb, They were made to burnt out.
Like with any other filament bulb, There a life rating.
If you don't want to use filament bulb. Get an LED bulb.

I think only the front is set up for running and turn not the back, but to answer your question yes your bulbs will burn out quicker using single fillament bulbs where a dual filament bulb is required to run both running and turn signal lights. If you want to go back to stock config find out where they routed the power for the running lights in the rear and then just remove that wire.
