Phony diode

Ok y’all I’m in a crisis. I started going through my bike it’s a 2005 zx6r. Decided to freshen her up a bit over winter. And I found these two loose wires on the right hand side of the bike . Next to the left switch housing harness. One wire is light green and one is red and green can some please tell what this gos to. I looked at my wire map and said it was a diode. But thus far I cannot find a replacement part for my year model bike please help!!!! It’s almost as if the wiring schematic is lying.

Basically, what a diode does is it allows current to flow in one direction and prevents it from flowing in the other direction. I'm not sure what this particular diode it connected to. Maye somebody else will be able to provide more insight into what this one is for.

In this case it looks like the diode is there to stop the LED indicators interfering with the safety lock-out switches.
