Where do these wires go??

I could have named this- "more head scratching from my previous owner"

Anyway, from the wiring harness under the gas tank, are two wires that have a black, factory connection plug. My PO cut and taped these wires just after the plug, (see photo below)-

Out of the harness and into the plug is a brown wire, and a green w/white stripe. The other plug connector has a black/w yellow stripe, and the green w/white stripe.

When I pull this "pigtail" straight out, it ends up in the area of the headlight, so it must have been cut in that area. The only thing up front in this bike not working are the horns, soooo

Have any of you seen this connection enough to know off the top of your head what it is?

Here's the picture-



I would be happy to take any more photos, or answer any questions to help somebody help me. Thanks.

the brown wire is a + wire that goes to ur horns, gauges, and to the brake light switch.
green and white go from the junction box to the side stand switch.
every wire thats black/yellow is a ground

Thanks Ogle, that makes sense. I don't have a side stand switch on the bike, which probably explains why the wires were just cut. I'm glad they left me with both halves of the plug anyway though. (somebody has really butchered parts of this bike. )

And Kanuck? You can see some pictures here:

I think it'll look a whole lot nicer with your seat on it. My stock seat, as seen in those pics looks kind of like a frankenstein afterthought to me; makes the bike look "dated". Which is why I was looking for the newer seat style-they just look better IMO.

More pics to come when it's all back together with the new seat!

According to the wiring diagram, that is the side stand switch connector.
