300 Bayou wiring

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1986 300 Bayou? Mine was stolen a week ago and we finally got it back today pretty much intact but they had hotwired it and I can't see any cut wires anywhere to go by to get it back up and running...if they didn't destroy the motor before they abandoned it. At least the only things missing were the winch, a couple pieces of plastic and the license plate.

Well, I have the motor turning over but the plug isn't firing. I jumpered the two empty plugs on the steering column that I assume is for the ignition (since it causes the neutral light to come on) and jumpered the starter right where the cable bolts on to turn it over but there is no fire at the plug at all. At least it's not seized and still has lots of oil in it.

Not too bad. They hadn't cut any wires, so it was just a matter of hooking some stuff back up. The no fire problem I had after doing all that was because the kill switch on the handlebar was acting up. After switching it back and forth a few times it worked. The bad news is that they broke a front hub so I still can't try it to make sure the transmission and clutch is working properly. It looks like they tried to beat new front bearings into it and split the hub and the pieces of the hub thrashing around took out the brake shoes and the backing plate.
I expected there to be more missing if we ever found it again at all. The gas tank turned up about 5 miles from where we found the bike.

I'm guessing that whoever stole it was planning on keeping it for a while since they put new bearings in the front hubs. Unfortunately they must have beat them in and cracked the hub on the inside. The pieces floating around while they were driving it ruined the brake shoes and messed the backing plate up quite a bit.
