Just connect everything like this:



are you starting from scratch? I've considered re doing an entire harness on motorcycles and my super 7 but this would be a tall order but not impossible. Get a couple of sheets of plywood and start running wires. I would break it up in to subharnesses and join them with watertight bulkhead connectors.

Check out HP Books Automotive Electrical Handbook (HP 387). I've seen it in libraries.
I has some good information including one or two chapters on wiring a vehicle from scratch.
X2 on going the sub-harness route, makes future repairs/changes easier.

If you've got no looms at all, try UK Ebay there are looms on there for sale quite regular. otherwise you could just order a brand new looms direct from Autosparks.

Not the cheapest option but by the time you've purchased the correct wire colors, connectors & loom tape etc.... add in your time there actually a good deal. You also know that they'll be 100% correct too, makes fault finding so much easier down the road
