I do believe you are correct on the colors. I know you are correct on the placement. Thought it was a petty dumb spot to put it, or should I say HIDE it!

Buy the AC wiring kit. It plugs right in to the wiring harness. Took less than 5 minutes but I did not use the dash mounted kit, just the wire secured to the handlebars.

there should also be a free plug under the foam on the hood. I plugged mine in there and ran it out to the left side. there is that little notch in the hood and the frontdash where you can run the cable. I also routed it through the rubber orings used to retain the shield. I have had good luck with the placement there. it is down a little lower so it doesn't interfere with the ride.
