Help with pickup swap

I'm having alot of trouble wiring a dimarzio evolution into the bridge position of my RG3EX1 guitar. I've looked at every wiring diagram I can find and I still don't know where to solder the different wires. My stock pickup has only a white, red, and an uncovered wire. The evo has a red, green, black, white, and uncovered wire. Its a standard HH setup with 1 volume and one tone. Here is a picture.

Edit: never mind I apparently can't.

Can someone help me out. The dimarzio wiring diagram has some switch in it I've never seen before.

Re: Help with pickup swap

Can't find a diagram for the rg3, Usually for the Evo, the red is the signal output the black and white are soldered together as the coil tap and the green is the ground, I guess the uncovered wire is the ground on the one you have and either the red or white is the signal with the other being the tap wire, have a go red for red and black/white for white and see if it's ok, if not swap the red and black/white...

Yup, that's right.

Bare and green together, to where the bare wire was
Black and white together, to where the white wire was
Red to where the red wire was
