Quick ignition coil question

I just now remembered the question I was trying to think of all day....

On the ignition coils, which wire goes to which connector? I found a reference to the front coil having the red wire towards the front of the bike and the black wire towards the rear, but no mention about the other coil. I have searched through both manuals and googled and I can't find the answer. Does the Red go on top or bottom on the rear coil?

I'm at a point where I am ready to start the motor for the first time since I started tearing everything down and I don't want to blow anything right off the bat. Thanks in advance for the info.

It really doesn't matter but rear coil red on top and front coil red toward front.

Before you start the engine remove the plugs and turn the engine over untill the oil light goes out to prime the system.

Thanks Lance. I didn't *think* it mattered, but after all of the hard work I have put into this, I didn't want to screw something up royally the first time I try to start it up. Besides, it never hurts to double check things.

Thanks again.
