New wiring harness

RE: 57 FL
Received a complete wiring harness plus turn signal switch and rear signals harness. In addition, it included a bag with "flags" for the wiring that goes through the handlebars. In the bag were some little copper rivets. Can someone tell me what they are for?
Thanks,
Sam

They get soldered to your wires at your switches, They are the actual contacts.

Those are the bulb contacts for your taillight and such.

Thanks for the replies. The switch was pre-wired and I didn't know what they were for.
The switch does not seem very well made, hope it's more robust than it appears.
Thanks
