Igniton switch question

I bought a universal ignition switch and solenoid and need to know how to wire them in. The switch has a battery, ignition, accesory and start. The solenoid has two posts and the starter switch input terminal. How do i wire it so the car will start when I turn the switch to start.

My delima is this is going on a honda trx 125. It had a bad solenoid and bad starter switch. I put a solenoid and this switch on the atv. I have power going into my solenoid and switch. When i turn the key to the "on" position the ignition and accesory come on and when I go to "start" i have power coming out of my switch and into the solenoid, but I don't have power coming out of my solenoid. Any ideas
