Yes, yet another in the seemingly endless parade of wiring questions! Hopefully this is a simple one. I am wiring up my handlebar switched and I have most of it sorted out. I can't, however, seem to figure out what the white/yellow wire on the right hand switch connects to. On the diagrams I have, it says to connect it to the white/blue wire that goes to the ballast resistor. I have the PowerArc ignition from Old Britts. so I don't have a ballast resistor. Any ideas what I should connect it to?

6. The separate Black ignition module wire is used as the -12 VDC to the module.
For positive grounded Commandos (common on most Commandos), connect the separate Black wire from the ignition module to the -12 VDC wire coming from the ignition or kill switch. This is a White, White/Blue or White/Yellow colored wire on most stock wiring harness.
So, for positive ground, connect the white/yellow (from the kill button) to the black PowerArc wire.

I can't believe I didn't get that! The problem was that I had the ignition installed before I tried putting the switches on. It's obvious now! Thanks!!
