RG470AHZ Pickup Replacement

Hi - I have a 2012 stock RG470AHZ that i am trying to replace the bridge pickup on. I bought a new DiMarzio Super Distortion to install but I can't figure out the wiring. I searched everywhere and what I have seen is the correlation between the INF2 Bridge pickup wiring color and the DiMarzio are:

DiMarzio red to INF red
DiMarzio white/black to INF2 white
DiMarzio green/bare to INF bare (ground on pot)

I triple checked the connections but only get half the output out of the pickup when wired this way (~7.5 instead of 14 or so) so i think i'm only getting one coil. This is the only pickup i am replacing - i left the other 2 factory pickups - any ideas?

Thanks - I hate to give up and take it to the shop.
