2014 Foreman - Recoil Starter Installation Instructions

I'm going to start to install the recoil starter kit on my new Foreman but the darn kit didn't come with any instructions.

Anyone have access to them? The kit part number is: 08U70-HR3-A40

I had to take the cover off on my 420 Rancher and there was just a plate back there with 4 bolts (8mm iirc).

On the earlier Foreman there are the same size bolts holding the recoil assembly in place, and then a bolt that holds the cup/pulley on the back of the crank.

I'm guessing you have this pulley, a spacer, a bolt, and the recoil assembly, right?

Here's a schematic of how it looks on the Rancher. The new Foreman models are pretty much a bigger rancher.

Yeah, the mechanicals look easy enough but the diode assembly, I don't know where to plug this in?

Got the recoil starter kit installed in under a hour. There's not much room in there but removing the right rear tire and the right side footwell makes a huge difference.

The capacitor sits vertically in the battery box, just in front of the battery. The wiring from the cap goes a bit forward and plugs into the main harness, you just have to remove a white dummy plug first.

Overall, the install is very easy.

I'm not finding the installation to be very easy, as some say. The instructions have some vague drawings of electrical wiring and I can't begin to decipher which plug is which. Any advice?

Update since my last post:
If you own a 2015 Foreman, take note! The Honda parts catalogue lists the wrong part number for a recoil starter; I came away from the Parts department with a recoil starter for a 2013 and earlier model ATV! No wonder I couldn't make sense of the wiring harness. It's a much easier job on a 2015; install the pull cord assembly, add the condenser, and voila, pull start installation done.
