I used the blue and blue/green as described in craydds' sketch below except i didn't wire into the acewell red, but the warning light I bought didn't come on... everything else appears to work though, so i'm wondering if i just got the wrong light.
On my bike ('75 R90S) the grey/black is for instrument illumination, but is positive (+) only when the headlight is ON. That is why I used the BMW green/black connected to Acewell red; green/black is (+) when key is ON. On your bike ('78) the grey/black is (+) always when the key is ON ?
Good luck on your generator light. Test the lamp separately to make sure it lights up.
