Hi Ernest
I have no problem to understand the left side of your picture with the RR wiring and the additional relay.
My problem is to be able to understand the right side.
The starter relay in your picture seems to loose two connections. I think one of them is the wiring to the ignition switch and the other from the RR. Both go to the 30 amp fuse and then to bat.
Does this mod change fonctionnality of the starter relay?
What does this mod change at all? What is the idea to do it?

The right side of the illustration does not need to be touched - no change at the starter solenoid is required.

The reality is that you only need one wire either the red or the red/white wire connected at the starter solenoid because the red and red/white wires are joined/bonded together in the wiring harness. I have only one 10 gauge wire connected from the power bar to the starter solenoid, more than sufficient considering the electrical power flows to the electrical system or to the battery through a 30 amp fuse.

Here's a test to do. Disconnect the red wire from the starter solenoid, start the engine/bike and check the voltage at the battery. Shut off the bike, reconnect the red wire and disconnect the red/white wire. Do the same test. Results should be identical. The reason for this is because these wires are joined/bonded together in the wiring harness. The purpose of these wires is to provide power to the electrical system on start and to replenish the battery after start. One wire would have been sufficient from the connection where the red and red/white wires are joined/bonded, Honda uses the two.

After the test reconnect the wire(s).

The wire you disconnect will be live so protect it from grounding, would not be pretty.

The change on the right side of the illustration does exactly what I have mentioned above, no need to make any change at the starter solenoid.

Let me know how it goes, especially if the above does not work.
