white/blue is positive + HOT
black/yellow is negative - Ground

same goes for the aux connections in the rear,

they should all be female "tubular socket/plug", and have rubber Insulation, that you "plug" a male Banana plug into.

don't know where your are seeing a black/green combo wire up there... :truce: :??:

Bill,
Good to hear from you. You should run another ride something like the ride you hosted a few years ago. The roads around your neighborhood in the Endless Mountains were awesome. I’ll help you set it up on the calendar if you are interested. Your place is not that far from the Williamsport National. Are you going?
Silver 2011 C-14 and 2019 Versys 1000 SE LT+.  Previous rides: KZ-400, KZ-750, KZ-1000.  Keep the rubber side down.  Ride Fast......Live Slow......

Let's try female "bullet" connectors (4 mm). Banana plugs are for the test bench.   :-[

I've allways call that style plug, SAE bullet connectors. You can go to
an auto parts store and get a trailer plug with pig tail wires already attached.

When working with DC volts and in doubt of polarity, use a voltmeter.  An incorrect guess will yield a negative voltage reading.
