New dash

I’m looking to replace the dash on my bike but the new instrument that came in all the wires are wrong on the plugs. Does anyone know what wires go to what in the 3 connectors that plug into the old dash inside the headlight goes to? What color wire goes to what on the bike? I can find full wire diagrams but can’t find one just for the 3 quick connects. And don’t really see them on the full diagram. Unless I’m just missing it??

On the full wiring diagram I have, the connectors are shown as thick black bars. Use the wire colors from the old dash plugs to determine what you can hook up to the new wiring. IF the new plugs pins are the same style as the old connectors remove the dash side wires and plug the proper new wire in the old wire's place. Getting the old wire out will be a PITA. I used a large sewing inserted down the wire side to depress the locking tab.

Hope this helps. If Spockster responds, use his guidance. It will be better than mine! :~)

Check the full diagram again, the wires are pretty clear. There's one black bar for the 5 wire connector (tach lights, tach, temp), one bar for the 9 wire connector (indicator light housing, fuel gauge), and one bar for the two wire connector (speedo lights). All the colors should be listed. Check my signature for a version with more readable letters than the raw scan.
