license plate light?

Hello all. I bought a 00' RC51 a few weeks ago. The bike failed inspection because of no light on the license plate. I bought a set of lights at a local shop. I'm not very good at electrical, so my question is, how do I install the lights? I know that the lights go in the plate bolt holes, I just dont understand what wires to connect to what. I've got some pics below...

Thanks!

The black/brown and green wires go to the running and license plate lights.
They are at the same point electrically.
So you should be able to connect both license plate lights to those wires.
Or course, use connectors so you can remove the light/bolts to remove your plate in the future.

These are the OEM colors on the wiring harness.
I have no idea what any aftermarket wiring colors may be.
Most often, they do not follow OEM wiring colors.
Try and back-track to the OEM harness colors and work forward.
