Hi bikeman8, welcome to the forum!

The correct wiring for your setup would be:

Green to Green (the way you have it all ready).
Black to Black.
Leave the kill switch disconnected until after you have the engine running.
The kill switches are well known to be shorted out brand new. If yours is too and you connect it right away, the engine will never run, and you will be mad at it.
You can easily stop the engine by applying the choke or by holding the rear brake on and quickly letting the clutch out with the engine at idle speed.

When you do get to connecting the kill switch it does not matter what wire goes to what so as an example: Green to Green wires and Yellow/ Red to Black wires.

The white wire is supposed to be used for powering a light but it is too weak to power any light that will actually be bright enough to be any good.
Either cap it off with electrical tape or heat shrink tubing, or best to just cut it off right at the magneto inside the magneto housing.

Broken or bent spokes should never ever be trusted for any reason EVER.
Either repair the wheel or replace it.
It is not worth injuring yourself over.
