The bushings in the steering column had gone out so there was a lot of play in the steering column I continue to ride it as we we have you gone to an ATV area. While riding it I would lose complete power I could start it up again ride a short distance lose complete power. I had assumed it was a loose wire or pinched wire causing the problem. I stripped everything down to check for loose wires and pinched wires while installing the new bushings. I believe I have found the electrical problem in the switch that has the run and off positions. But now my highbeam lights are not working but for sure they were before I disassembled everything. I’m wondering if these wires do not have something to do with that

Black wire should be ground. Purple wire is usually the reverse override switch. That red wire with the black bundle behind it is definitely battery power. That's a circuit breaker inside that bundle

Yup there should be 2 red wires with a stripe going up to the left hand controls headlights get their power from one of those. I believe green and brown are the wires from the switch to the dim side and yellow and brown for the bright side

Black wire is the ignition kill wire, brown wire is ground, purple is for the fuel gauge, red/wht is switched 12v, but not all wires are used on all models and what you might be looking at is splices.
