Default 1988 Coil wiring

Hello all, apologies if this has been asked before. I'm building a Hardtail Chopper out of a 1988 XL Hugger 883 with a 1200 kit. all the wiring is plugged back together and I'm trying to figure out how the coil gets it's power. The coil is an HD OEM and has no markings of the terminals. When I dismantled the wiring I took 1 picture of the coil. Looks like two pink wires right and 2 white wires left terminal. One pink and white wire goes to the ignition module, the other white I assume goes to the headlight system. this leaves one pink wire. would this last pink wire carry 12v power from the ignition.
Thanks for all your help

Power comes to the Coil on the WHITE wire - It comes FROM the RUN/STOP switch.

From the Coil, power also goes on the 2nd WHITE wire to the Ignition Control Module (ICM).

One PINK wire TO THE COIL, comes FROM the Igntion Control Module (ICM) (Could also be BLUE) - This is the trigger signal to the Coil (similar to points opening & closing).

The other PINK wire goes FROM the Coil TO the Tachometer (if you have one) to trigger the RPMS.
