1985 goldwing 1200

Hey everyone was wondering if anyone could help me out. The old radio quit on me on the bike a week after i bought it. I am trying to install a new one but can't seem to get power to the new radio. Does anyone know the coloring of the wiring. Red is usually hot and yellow back up power and black seems to be ground.

In our bikes, solid green is always ground. Black often carries power, so don't depend on it being ground - in most cases, it's not.
