Ok you all will think im dumb, but can someone tell me where the wiring harness lays on the frame and where each branch goes? Also, is there a better color diagram anywhere? Thanks again in advance.

That's question is impossible to answer by the printed word. I suggest that you look at a Honda shop manual for your bike. You'll find the diagrams you need there. If you don't have a shop manual, you can find one on eBay or, you can download one for free here along with a wiring diagram.

Thank you verymuch! I figured out the rear wiring and tommorrow I will figure out the front birdsnest. The PO thought it would be a good idea to "fix" the rectifier wiring with a double wire you would typically see on a lamp in a house,so I had to fix it, but all is going smoothly!

A 17 year old is doing better the this bike than the PO ever did xD
