running lights

Ok, I was riding the other night, and my friend noticed that my running lights weren't on, just when I used the turn signal. So, I opened up my service manual and I can't find anything that even says I'm supposed to have running lights.I've checked all the fuses, and looked at the electrical schematics. I'm only seeing 2 wires per light.

I'm riding an 03 ZX-6R 636.

Thanks!

turn signal lights, like in your car. When your lights are on, they are dim, and they brighten when you use your turn signal. My friends R6's were working.

When I'm not using my turn signals, the only lights on at night are my headlight and my license plate light.

acidrain are you sure that this isnt just normal. in the uk running lights are just your headlights and your indicators come on only when you use them. in the US i know what you mean because you dont really have indicators, you have a set of tail-lights that seem to do a dual function and flash when u use your indicators.... other Americans can you confirm this??

My 04 has never had "running lights". They blink when I use the signal button and that is it. The tail light is just that, a tail light that serves as a brake light also. Sounds like you have a short somewhere. Even if by chance you have a european model the only "running lights" are in the outermost corners of your headlights.
