black to negative (-) red to positive (+)
Connect positive first then negative.
Disconnect = negative first, positive second

Black to negative (-) the cables won't go far enough to reverse them.

The other end of the cable from the starter motor goes to the starter solenoid ...


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

Big relay-looking gizmo under the rider's seat, next to the battery, which also has another honkin big cable that goes to battery +, and the main 30-amp fuse on top, with a bunch of other smaller wires going in and out.

PS you really need to pay attention to which way the wires attach at the solenoid. The book explains it. Starter motor power is not fused, which means if you get it wrong, really bad things happen ...
