Suzuki GT250 1975 wiring problem

Hi Folks new to the site but glad to join in.

I have almost finished restoring a Suzuki GT250 1975 Ram air. New wheels, new headlamps, brakes, cables, rear light, rear light bracket, battery, polished engine casings, new levers, new front brake hose, new brake seals master cyliner and calipers, rechromed chain cover, rear mudguard, front lamp brackets, fork covers, rear brake lever, cyliner heads honed, new piston rings, bead blasted frame, powder coating, swing arm bushes, all stainless steel nuts and bolts,

Now the electrics, just the front wiring loom to complete but the ignition switch has 6 wires, red, orange, brown, brown, black/green & black/white, the 2 brown wires are seperate and the others go into a 4 way block. however all of the wiring diagrams only show 4 wires coming from the ignition switch. and the red doesnt seem to go anywhere.

Any ideas???????

is bike a gt250m

from memory red is power from battery and charging circuit, orange is switched supply to main loom, so that should be red in, orange out of ignition switch in the on position. parking lights also work through the ignition switch so with switch in p position one wire will be connected to red through the ignition switch probably a brown. you're gonna need a meter.

I've looked for a wiring diagram can't find one!

ignition

Hi

its only 3 position, off, on, park.

the two brown wires are seperate to the 4 way plug, one has a double bullet conector the other a single one.

red wire

the only red + supply is via the main 9 pin connector, there is no way to connect the red wire to the ignition switch without using a scotch connector which cannot be right.

wiring loom

in fact the more I look at the wiring loom the more I think there is a bit missing because on the 9 pin connector the red from the battery changes to a grey on the opposite side of the 9 pin connector which is very odd.

I can definatly report that some of the headlamp wiring loom has been hacked of so I've ordered a replacement for £29.99 on line hence the confusion.
