Default 01 F4i wiring mess (pics)

Iím new to this forum, and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure the wiring of my f4i. I bought the bike second hand and the wires came kinda messy. I recently got into an accident with the bike (surprisingly everything on the bike was fine, besides the fairings and headlights/front turn signals) Iím going to attempt to fix the wires. I am completely new to working with wires and have no idea where to start. This morning the bike stopped running. All the gauge lights are working but when I hit the turn on button the gauge kinda dims out and restarts. If all is not worth it Iíll take it to a certified mechanic and have them do it. Any help is highly appreciated

What's the black frayed stuff there? Is it wire? Or nylon wire guide?

Hi , have you got the workshop manual, your gonna need that for the wiring diagram, it looks like you might have LED headlights fitted, is that so, the best thing to do is use the wiring diagram, sort out the connectors and what they are, stick a tab on each set to remind you what they are, and go through methodically , then you'll be ready for connecting once you've got everything else fixed

yea I had LED headlights but they got smashed, and as for using the wiring diagram in the manual, is it mostly going to be a trial and error type thing to see what goes to what

Hi , no its not trial and error, the wiring at the front is not duplicated , as you can see from the headlights , the 2 connectors have different wires for the hi and lo beams Green and Blue for the Hi beam and Green and Blue/White for the Lo, the connectors look intact so write some tags on the connectors to say what they are and carry on like that through the front end
