How do I learn electrical systems?

Currently trying to build/restore/fix a crf450x into a do it all bike. I'm almost done, but am running into problems with the wiring. The problem is that I don't know a single thing about wires, diagrams, or how any of it works. I'm not looking for help, rather I'm looking for anyone who knows a book, guide, or manual that will help me understand the electrical system. Something as simple as installing a keyed ignition with only 4 wires terrifies the hell out of me, and it's completely unacceptable. I just don't want to be posting questions, and endlessly searching the web for every issue.

So is there a book you read that would help me understand the electrical system?
