Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's try check and review the basics on most versions:

  • white wire from starter solenoid not connected to anything - the original wire colors to the starter relay are red/white and blue/white;
  • - red/white - IGNB+12V;
  • - blue/white - start cut-off relay;
  • black/white wire by kickstand not connected to anything - would be for the oil level switch/sensor.
