The wires should be a yellow and a pink. The wiring harness should have two bullet connectors for those wires, they are a short jumper that shorts out the alternator.  The two wires are designed as input to a rectifier to charge a battery but can be used to run lights by adding a regulator, I'm using a 4 wire AC regulator from a XR250R on my 01 200.
