Does anybody know how to wire the starter switch assembly with no neutral switch or clutch switch?

I thought that I could just wire the r/y solenoid wire to the starter button and the other solenoid wire to the ground....but it didnt seem to work.

I think that my starter button went bad so i bought a new switch assembly and I forgot which wires went to what and the new switch has different colors...

It was originally wired with no clutch/neutral switch and worked fine...
This is the old switch

If a job is worth doing... its worth doing well... and right! I wouldn't touch that cobbled up mess except to rip it all out and fix it right.

I'll probably end up doing that...I already have a neutral switch, just need to buy a new clutch handle with the switch. Thanks retro...by the way...if you remember my other thread, my lack of power returned...10 minutes into our ride! But I will get into that after this problem is fixed... =/

Get all the right parts in good condition on the machine first. If your wiring harness has been hacked on replace that too! Replace everything if you have to. Cobbling junk up creates nothing but junk... it wastes your time and money until that day finally comes that nothing is left on the machine of value and nothing works! I know I sound like a scolding parent... and that is intentionally so... what you are doing with that harness is extremely dumb. Expect no mercy.

I have literally been messing with this for weeks...a facebook comment just told me to just ground the clutch switch wire on the solenoid and it worked! I do plan to replace some of the wiring tho...i see future problems...

I see present problems. You do too. It takes a few hours to fix it right... not weeks. Replace all of it now. Replace everything on the machine that is cobbled up. Use the service manual for reference and go through everything, putting it all back correctly. Do great work... and everything will then work great.

I have decades of experience to draw knowledge from. If I had not began at an early age; consciously, to work on myself to improve my work habits, I would have been a declared and admitted failure before I reached age ten! I can't stress this point enough... work continuously on improving yourself and you'll become an over-achiever amongst humanity almost overnight!

Now lets fix that bike back up....
