this model will only have fuses for each wiring load. for example, follow the wires from battery like you said and it leads to the main fuse and start solenoid. check that fuse and then there will be another fuse block that will control other components, like lights, ignition, and horn, etc.
the small wires on the solenoid should lead to the fuse assy. there will also be a fuse in the wire loom in a small black case about the size of a aaa battery
