Hi Pete – glad you’re making some headway on the bike.
If you’re just looking to trim out all the unneeded wires I generally like to carefully cut the black sheaths off of the wiring harness so all wires are exposed. Then you can easily just trace each wire by hand and snip it off.
Something like this.
