Looks like it has electronic ignition with the red wire to the flasher. Most of us find a wire that is hot all the time the ignition is on and solder in a fused line. Yours is the way Dyna recommends, but if you lose a turn signal, you lose your ignition. Another upgrade is to use a relay to trigger a direct hot 12v wire to power the ignition. Old bikes, old corroded connections result in voltage losses that can affect performance, and these bikes have several connectors from the battery up to the fuses to ignition switch to ........... lots of places to drop voltage.
Whatever I suggest here should be given ample time for a moderator to delicately correct. I apologize in advance.
