The only thing you haven't checked is the bulb and the socket that it's in......

Default wiring picture

and here is a photo.

In the bottom, you can see the wires which come from the turn signal. A Black (with white stripe) wire, and a Red wire.

In the top right of the photo you can see the four other wires which lead from the handlebar. They seem to be paired in two. At the top, a yellowish wire with a Black (with white stripe) wire. Just below that, a greenish wire with a Black (with white stripe) wire.

Following the wiring diagram, I used the yellowish wire as the pink wire (figuring the pink faded), and connected it to the Black/white stripe wire coming from the turn signal. I then used the greenish wire to connect to the Red wire coming from the turn signal.

It did not work...

I don't see a red wire in the wiring diagram for your bike. I do know that black/white should go to black/white. The diagram for your bike says black to green.

I would go green to red after that as it may be an aftermarket replacement housing. If it doesn't work, check the bulb.

To reiterate:

Green and black/white pair goes:

Green to red
Black/white to Black/white

Oh, and that pink wire? If you look carefully at the key for that schematic, it's actually labeled as black/white. Just because the diagram says it's pink, doesn't mean it is. Always, always, check the key.

Thanks for the suggestion. Both the wiring, and the need to look at the key!

I hooked it up as you suggested and it worked immediately!

Out of curiosity... any idea what the other two dangling wire connectors are?

The only yellow black/white pair I find on the schematic is for the high beam indicator. As to why they are down by your turn signal, I've got no idea on that one.

Black with white stripe is your ground. Pretty much always on all skoots. The extra pair of wires (probably brown and black with white stripe) is usually for running lights in front if you swap out your signals for ones with dual filament bulbs and 3 wires. This wire should be hot when you turn the key on, same circuit as your tail light. Just wiping the wire down will let ya see what color it originally was under the dirt and goo.

So here is a pre kat 750 wiring diagram I reworked for those of us that have trouble reading and making sense of the diagrams. Hope it helps

This is the best so far,
i still cant seem to find out what the deal is here which is the main power for the tail light/dash lights, the brown one right?? theres just one that pretty much brings power too the running lights/lic plate and gauge cluster right?

i guess that sounds like a stupid question but the way it loked on the diagram was that it was a fairily regular looking block, but i didnt see any thing like that there so figured that wouldnt be that easy
