There must be a reason why two different colours if I connect anyway around no damage ? Should I just bite the bullet and go for it !!

The smaller set of prongs is a circuit that when completed , actuates the solenoid.
The other larger set are the starter circuit which is completed by the solenoid when the smaller circuit is completed.
It looks like the spades are different sizes for the two sets of wires so the circuits are clear and the position of the colored wires is not critical.

Earth, negative or ground should all be common. The negative wire from the battery should connect to the frame somewhere on your scooter. Without pictures, if you're talking about two smaller gauge wires for a relay one is positive when you press the start button the other is a ground. You can connect it to a good ground spot on the chassis.

This picture is basically what your trying to wire up.
