wiring and headlight installation

I was able to completely wire the bike today, used the stator from the XL, and have spark! Still wondering if I can run the bike w/o damaging any of the electronics if there is no battery? At least for a test? Should I unhook the regulator/rectifier?

Also, As I understand it, there are 3 circuits on the stator: 1-AC for ignition. 2-AC for headlight, 3-AC for other power that is then converted into DC to charge battery and run the other lights? is this correct?

Does anyone know what the other flat blade connector is that is right next to the turn signal relay? My relay has only 2 blades. The third wire is green so I suspect ground?

I have my headlight/speedometer installed. Zip ties are mans best friend :) however, another ADV inmate will be helping me get some factory brackets in a few months hopefully, so I can complete the install.

Tomorrow I'd like to start and go riding! that's my tentative plan...
