THose things use one wire for power, and the frame of the bike for the other wire - the ground. WHen you put it back on, there's a little screw in the bracket that digs thru the paint to ground the circuit. Make sure you use that. Other than that, just run wires from the generator bottom clip to the two lights. Can't hook it up wrong!
