I probably can't help much but I'm guessing those colour markings are not referring to the 3 connectors you need?
As far as I'm aware it will need a positive, negative and a feed from coil.

The colours marked on the back are the colour wires on the connector plug, all i have found is that the green goes to - coil, the others i dont know, i have a haynes skematic diagram that some body gave me but we cant find the rev counter on it.
So if the green is the coil- then i need an chassis earth and a ign + ??
