Question about Cars & Trucks
First off, without the jumper wire, the ACC position will not function, but I've never used this position anyways.
It is so you can run your tail light without the ignition or headlight, in case you're broke down by the side of the road.
You keep telling me the BLACK wire goes to the battery, but you STILL haven't told me if it goes to the battery POSITIVE (+) or NEGATIVE (-) terminal.
BUT, usually the battery grounds (-) to the frame, rather than up near the switch, so I am going to ASSUME it is the POSITIVE wire to the battery.
That said, look here:
Your BLACK wire will go to the terminal marked HOT
Your RED wire will go to terminal marked IGN ONLY & BRAKE LITE.
Your BLUE wire will go to terminal marked IGN & ALL LITES
If you dont want to run the jumper wire (remember, without it, the ACC position won't work), then just ignore the JUMPER FOR ACCESSORIES.
Again, the ACCESSORIES NO IGN won't function, but this is a position that most people will never use anyways.
This SHOULD give you both IGN and IGN & LITES.
If, by chance, this works backwards, then swap the RED and BLUE wires.
Again, beings as it appears your bike has been rewired in the past with non-standard color codes, I am only able to go with the information you have supplied.

Testimonial: "Hey thanks Strech,but what Im stuck is what wires go together on the board terminal,there is a blue,and a red,and a black,the black is going ti the + side of battery and I am assuming the red and blue are the ones that goes to switch,there is a brown one,a violet one,and a white one,that is the wires that are coming from the front.The other wires that are not coming from the front a orange and red brake light switch,a red from the starter relay,a red and green coming from tail light.I have 9 places on terminal board,it sets up and down,with one on top,I just don't know which connections are suppose to be together,that's where I am confused at you can I am not that great when comes to wiring I just don't want to put something together and fry something.I really appreciate every thing you have done you have been a big help bro."

SOURCE: Hey Strech it is me again you are probably tired of me asking questions,but you know your stuff.My ignition is the old type acc,off,ignition,lights but there is only 3 wires going to it a red to the l
To clarify, by your statement, "only 3 wires going TO it", you mean the wires go UP TO the ignition switch, but are not hooked up to it, right?
Here's a top AND bottom pic of the switch:
Not that when the switch is turned over, the contacts are reversed (contacts on the right normally are on the left when switch is turned over).
Here's an (explained) view of the BOTTOM of the switch:
NOTE THE TWO JUMPER WIRES
You stated the BLACK wire goes to the battery, HOT (+) I assume, so that would go to the long, curved terminal marked POWER IN.
This will be on your right when looking down on the TOP of the switch (remember,the layout is backwards when the switch is turned over).
The other wires (RED and BLUE), you'll have to follow them back to see which is the IGNITION, and which is the LIGHTS.
They will go to the appropriate switch terminal.
Lights to the one marked LIGHTS in the above mentioned illustration, and the one from the ignition to the terminal marked IGNITION.
Again, yours is not the standard wiring color code, probably because of a rewire in the past, so I can not tell if the RED wire goes to the ignition, or the lights, nor can I tell about the BLUE wire.
