Recently purchased a 1025R and adding a ROPS light, The 2 bullet connectors at the bottom rear of the ROPS are purple and black in color, which is positive and which is negative?

If you are installing the JD halogen work lights it doesn't matter. If you are installing your own LEDs it does matter. You definitely want to verify everything with a meter. When hooking up my LED lights I found on the one side purple was ground and on the other side black was ground. Go figure.
I just went through this about 6 months ago, I believe it is the purple but a test light will get you there.
Not always. One pair of my wires was black/negative and the other pair was purple/negative. The halogen lights didn't care but when I installed LED lights it was a problem. Best advice is to always verify the polarity before making permanent connections.
Black is negative (ground) and purple is positive.

No... it was the harness. When the one light didn't work I checked the harness with a voltmeter and discovered JD had installed the one branch wire pair backwards. I resoldered the connectors on the lights to match.
I'd be more inclined to believe that one of your LED lamps was mis-wired.
