My bikes ignition wire colors don’t match the wires in the manual, what do I do?

If your bikes ignition wires don’t match the wire colors we mention in the manual its pretty easy to figure out which wires go where, you will need to have a multi-meter or test light as well as a something to write with as well as your bikes key.
STEP 1 make sure your bikes keyswitch is in the OFF position, now using your Multi-meter or test light we are going to test your bikes wires, write down the color of wires that currently have 12V with the key switch turned off, you may only have one that is at 12V or you may have numerous.
STEP 2 (if your bikes keyswitch only has an ON and OFF position skip this step) turn your key to the first position, now test the wires and write down the colors of the wires that now have 12V.
STEP 3 Turn your keyswitch to the ON position, now test the wires and write down which now have 12V.
STEP 4 if you only had 1 wire that had 12V during STEP 1, hook up our BROWN and our RED wire to this wire. If you have 2 wires that were at 12V during STEP 1, hook our RED wire up to one of them and our BROWN wire up to the other.
STEP 5 (if your bikes keyswitch only has an ON and OFF position skip this step) The wires that went to 12V during STEP 2 will go our our RED/WHITE stripe wire.
STEP 6 The wires that got 12V during STEP 3 will go to our RED/BLACK stripe wire.
