Default Generator conversion kit question

I just purchased a v-twin 12v generator/alternator conversion kit. I understand how to install it but my question is, since I’m going from a generator & regulator, which I assume was original to the bike (1977 xlh), is there anything/wires I need to remover beside the old generator & regulator?

The wire to the generator light will need to be dealt with if you aren't using it. That should be it though.

Thank you, no generator light. She’s pretty bare boned.
