starter and solenoid wiring pictures

hi all
new guy to the forum. i bought a 2008 sportsman 500 ho efi from a friend who rolled it. it had sat in his shop for a year or so and another one of his friends had taken the starter, starter solenoid, and the recoil. i bought those items and cannot figure out what wires go where. ive tried to read the wiring schematic but still can not figure it out. i was hoping someone on here could take some pictures of what wires go where. when these guys pulled the parts off they just left wires un bolted and unplugged. any help would be appreciated
thanks in advance

okay here goes:

from the positive terminal of the battery to the one side of the solenoid goes the big positive wire

from the other side of solenoid to the starter motor lug goes another big ass wire

from the starter switch to the solenoid goes a thin wire that powers the electromagnet that flips over the solenoid.

Recoil has no wires but the bendix has to go in before putting on the starter motor.

All wires are positive as the system gets its ground from the frame.

Think of it as a hose trying to get water from the battery to the starter motor. battery ----> one side of solenoid -----> other side of solenoid -------->> starter motor lug.

thanks inrbigness...i bought a used starter and solenoid and i can get the starter to turn over but i have to cross the solenoid studs with a wire. but i have no spark, even with the pull start. any ideas. the throttle cable gap is good. tried unplugging the speedometer (someone shot it with a bb gun and it does not come on). all fuses are good.
thanks again for at least helping me get the starter going
