I have Skene photon LED light that I wold like to have on all the time while riding.
I hope to connect to the ignition wiring, but the wires are not like my manual wire diagram
There are 7 wires not 5 as shown in the wiring diagram and the colors on the bike are as follows:
1 Big solid orange, 2 Big soild red,1 brown with grey dot, 1 grey with dark dots, 1 black with yellow stripe and grey dots, 1 orange with white stripe and grey dots.

The manual show 1 Red, 1 Orange, 1 orange/yellow stripe, 1 Gray, 1 Brown.

Any ides how to proceed. I need a ground and a hot wire connections

thanks in advance.

You're best bet is an O/G orange wire with a green stripe. The OEM heated grip connector behind the radiator and the power lead the the rear brake switch are good examples. I can't speak to the discrepancy with the manual but the dots are just to indicate wire length. They are not part of the color code.

Greywolf, I don't understand. Are you saying find an orange with yellow stripe to attached the red hot wire and give up on wiring anything to the ignition wiring which does have a orange with white stripe ? What would be the ground wire for my black wire? I have a red and a black wire to attached and the black is the ground.
My LED light at on the front forks.

Any orange wire with a green stripe wire is an ignition on hot wire. You can attach your red wire from the light to it. Any Black with a white stripe wire is a ground wire. You can attach your black light wire to it. The O/W wires feed the coils. They can get coil induced spikes so are not recommended. A short in your wiring would also kill the engine. The O/G wire is a signals wire. If your add on wiring shorts out, you would only lose your turn signals and brake light. If you intend on adding any more electrical stuff, a relay triggered fuse block would be a good idea.

Thanks for the help. I have a black wire with a white strip that is in the head light wiring that I could use of the ground. As for the two orange wires in the 7 wire ignition wiring. One is a thick orange with no stripes and the other is a smaller gage orange with a white stripe. Can I assume that the larger gage orange is the hot. If, so that could be my next attempt.
I let you know if it works.
Thanks

The orange wire is ignition on hot direct to the regulator rectifier output. If your add on wiring shorts out, it will blow the main fuse. At least put a 10A fuse on the light's red wire near where it connects to the Orange wire. Don't assume anything about wiring. I told you where to find orange wires with green stripes that can be used directly. I'd advise you to use one of those.
