Integrated Tail Light/Blinker Problem

Hey guys new to this site. I bought a 2001 ZX7R not too long ago and i am going through fixing the last owner's mess. Ok so heres the problem. The LED lights look like a custom job but the problem is there are only 3 wires coming out of the lights. Red, Black and the one for the blinkers. I have the blinkers wired up and hooked to resistors to slow the blink rate and the red i have hooked to the brake and of course negative to negative. Im just wondering what im supposed to do about the running lights because if i hook both running and brake to the red coming off the light then it stays lit and cant use the brake light. Blinkers work fine.

Well lots and lots of searching and i found the solution. Run both brake and park wire to same wire off the lights. The park wire will have a resister to reduce how bright it is and both the wires will have diodes to stop current flow back. Hope this helps anyone that may have the same problem since no one was able to help me.

Well that didnt work so i am going to run seperate led strips to serve as my brake lights and have the all in one tail light things just do running and blinker.
