Mystery wires...

My bike was missing the headlight when I got it, So I just got some parts today I have extra wires that are not connected to anything;
1st is a 4 wire female plug with a red, teal, red/blue, & yellow/black.
2nd is a 2 wire male plug with red/blue and yellow/black
and then 2 single wires with large female spade connectors, 1 white/blue and yellow/black. And there are 2 more identical loose wires at the back of the bike as well.
Can someone enlighten me please?

The 2 single wires should be for any accesories you might want to hook up. Not sure about the others without looking at mine.

the 4 wire plug and 2 wire plugs go to the handlebar controls and dash, the single white/blue and blacck yellow plugs are accessory leads one set is in the Headlight bucket like you mentioned and the second are behind the right side cover. They are a constant hot and ground, so we normally tell people to use them to add a relay for things like a volt meter, GPS, or other accessory.

Get yourself a copy of the repair manual download in my signature.
There's wiring diagrams that will help you trace anything.
As a note, the accessory leads in the headlight bucket & behind the right side
Cover are always hot.
