Sorry, don't have any pics but it's pretty straightforward.
The original RR has 7 wires coming out of it.
2 red/white - positive - to battery
2 green - earth - to battery
3 yellow - to stator - doesn't matter what order.
These wires go to 2 plugs up behind that little triangular cover on RHS of the bike.
The stator plug is rectangular, the pos/neg plug is round.
I stripped the outer cover off, then cut the wires about 6" from the RR.
The Compufire RR has 5 wires.
1 positive - soldered to the 2 red/white
1 earth - soldered to the 2 green
3 stator wires - soldered to the 3 originals.
I then heat shrinked each join and re-wrapped the whole thing with the original cover and rescue tape (self amalgamating tape)
You have to make up a plate to adapt the mounting points because the Compufire mounting holes are further apart than the original.
Hope that all makes sense.
