No not any connectors there is a wire going to the starter solenoid that isn't connected to anything I put them together but it will crank the starter but the bike won't run and no light will turn on

You can download a PDF of the XVS750 service manual here: Yamaha Virago Factory Service Manual - ViragoHelp.com

I think the schematic for your bike is on page 60. This shows a heavy cable from the battery to the solenoid contact and a lighter cable making it's way through two connectors to the main fuse, and thence to the rest of the wiring harness. I think that might be the lead you are highlighting.

Be careful connecting your battery to random points. There's enough power in that battery to weld steel, melt insulation, and totally ruin your wiring harness and components.

Pretty sure that's the wire that supplys power to all loads.
There should be a red wire with a spade connector that it plugs into.
