When you do the wiring, make sure you disconnect the RR from the wiring harness. Connect the wire from the alt to the battery where the red-white striped wire is connected on the starter solenoid. Make sure you isolate the red-white striped wire at the starter solenoid so it cannot touch anywhere because it will still be "live" because of the way it is hooked into the wiring harness.

If you have a one wire alternator, you'll only have to connect the alternator directly to the starter solenoid. If you have a three wire alternator, you have to hook up the indicator light as well as shown on the diagram supplied by RoadRogue.

Good luck. Cheers
