starter ground wire

where does the starters long black ground wire connect to? Anywhere on the frame or does it run somewhere specific?

I've looked through this forum as well as the manual. it does not give me a specific location.

Anywhere to the frame is fine as far as I know

I didn't make a good user name and I can't change it, so please call me Nate.

That's not a ground, it's the hot wire from the solenoid.

Yep the starter is grounded through contact with the engine. The only wire that comes off if it runs along the bottom of the engine and up to the right side cover where it is attached to the solenoid.

Is true. I also purchased a solenoid off amazon and it works fine FYI. Prolly didn't need it but was trying to troubleshoot some warm starting issues.

You will be very displeased with the results if you ground that wire & try to start your bike.
