I have recently purchased a 2004 shadow aero, heres the rub. Someone before the person I obtained the bike from has clipped turn signal wires. We have poured over this bike for weeks patching and replacing things.
My question is, do the running lights have to be hooked up for the turn signals to work properly?

NO but they add a measure of safety. They are a dual filament bulb so one does not depend on the other.
The rear light do not have running light unless someone modified them.

We are switching to LED we cant seem to find a diagram that shows us how the turn signal wires run together schematics are not helping. We need a photo of how they are all plugged together. He has made a spaghetti mess of these wires.

Isn't it great dealing with a PO's "customization"? We see a lot of that here. Hope you get it sorted out.

You could always go with something like this if you get desperate.

@Ramie best wiring diagram ever.
@Punkyb I feel ya, went through the same crap on mine, except they replaced all my colors from the factory with a very trendy red throughout. It would have looked cool if they were exposed on a different color scheme... but, alas, I had to remove and re run about 30’ of wire in total. DIY should have an * on it, always!

I think the best course of action, instead of facing a maze of wires AND trying to hook up LED's is to hook it up in stock configuration. Then when everything is working properly, wire in the LED's. It'll be a helluva lot easier on you.
