I’m wiring up my bike with a new harness.. when I got this bike the wiring was all cut up and coroded and nothing was in the right place.. I just got my new harness, and everything is pretty straightforward.. however because I didn’t have a red (12+v) I’m not sure where this one goes.. does it connect to the starter solenoid with the positive cable or does it go to the battery with the positive cable?

Red wire on the solenoid goes to the battery.
Other terminal on the solenoid goes tonyhenatarter motor. I don't think the terminal positions can be switched. It'll work or it won't.
I'm only 55% confident on this advice btw... Haha. A multimeter and testing continuity will help confirm things. Red on main harness should go to red on ignition switch plug.

You are correct, doode. Makes no difference which high current wire goes to starter or battery. Solenoid is only a magnetically actuated switch.

Whichever one it reaches to with the best routing. It will not make any difference whether it is connected to the battery or starter relay.
