2004 Sportsman 500 Solenoid Wiring

Hello - I am trying to replace a solenoid in my 2004 Sportsman 500. It has 4 posts like the old one I replaced.
I, of course, didn't take a picture of how it was wired before taking it apart.
There are 4 posts on the solenoid. I believe I have the two smaller posts on the left (in the pic) wired correctly, with the small white wire with the red stripe on top.
There are two other red wires (one to starter, one to winch I think).
One other red wire (not pictured) goes to battery +.
Then there's one grey wire (at the bottom of the pic).
Can someone tell me how this wiring should go?

On the two small terminals - the wht/red goes to one and a brown to the other

On the two large terminals - the battery positive, winch wire and the grey wire go to one terminal and the starter motor wire goes to the other
