Two more questions?

Alright I just have two more connections and they should be easy ones but I cant remember where I took them off of as i took this apart almost a year and a half ago.
First one is under the right side cover, black ground which I believe goes to the block but dont see where.



second one is under the seat, the plug goes to the gas tank but I'm not sure where the green on with the bullet connector goes???



Looked through my manual but man that electrical section is big, thanks for the help, hopefully this is it till it doesn't start or something!

Yep that's the engine grounding wire. Feel free to put it behind any bolt you can reach (having it tucked away of course) on the engine. And I believe that green is a spare ground for accessories.

On my 1990 750, I have a light green wire like yours which seems to connect to a similar color wire running from the oil pressure sensor located at the bottom rear of the engine at the midline of the engine.

gvaughn are you saying your green wire is connected to this if so that what I was thinking but now im missing the wire that connects them


and to make it easier if someone could shoot me a picturemail of what the black ground in connected to I would be forever thankful, figure thats easier than uploading a pic her. 740-466-8206. Im pretty sure it mounts to the engine like mike said but I dont see a bolt it will reach that I would have taken off, and I dont want to take one out of the case. thanks

I will try to get a pic of my bike in them areas when I get home from work, but it wont be until around 7 pm eastern if I can get it at all.

right now mine has the right side cover off (paint work) and seat, tank, rear fender as well (also paint work, except seat, which is getting replaced I hope) so I should be able to get a decent pic, if time allows

Thanks but I think I figured it out. it went in one of the case bolts directly over the neeutral sensor but on top of the case. I thought it did so lightly turned on the screw I thought and it was loose. now if anyone could tell me what the hell I did with that wire that was draped over my bike for so long, it was light green and I was like damn, did this go to the bike, the quad or the trailer? well now I know and I cant find the damn wire anywhere, might have to make one!

I just have to install the coolant reservoir (but cant find the screw that goes there so gonna ues one off the neck covers for now) fill it with coolant. install the ears, tank, battery and seat, doublecheck everything, fill with oil and cross my fingers, unfortunately itll be tomorrow before I can finish all that!

[QUOTE=wib714;836946]gvaughn are you saying your green wire is connected to this

Yes. I think that's the oil pressure sensor. The wire coming off mine has a 90 degree bend to it, and the wire is about 12-18 inches long with a bullet connetor to match to the green wire in your picture.
