Does anyone have a simple wiring diagram for running with a mangeto and no battery? Seems like I just need one wire from the generator to capacitor to the ignition switch, and a few more for headlight/tail light an brake switch.

Correct, and why a key switch? Just a toggle will do, and it is next to useless, since you will have no battery.

See Rhysmorton, he runs the same setup. He is currently adding a rear tail light and brake light on his. But, yes, genny to cap, then wire what you need. I am sure he will chime in, when he sees this. Not that he can add anything. But, he can tell you his experience.

Just pretend the battery in the diagram is a capacitor. They are the same really, batteries just hold a charge a bit longer.

Also erase the ignition coil and point (in brown) coming off the IGN position. You don't want to send voltage to your magneto.

I've literally got a single wire through my whole bike for back and front light. If you can crack it, will work like a dream!
