What's that skinny green wire going to the bottom of the motor?

Hey guys,

What is the teency green wire coming from the wiring harness by the battery that goes underneath the motor. It looks like a sensor connection under there. Oil pressure? It's not a ground is it? Im looking over all my ground connections to verify all my electrical poo

HAHAHA just making sure its not a crappy ground that I overlooked. History on this site shows clearly that not every wire on a VN750 is needed

Well, there's one way to find out...disconnect it and see if your neutral light comes on....
(Or your bike runs...)

hehe, bike will run, but the neutral light will never light (and if the safety systems are still hooked up, it may not start, depending on clutch lever position), due to it grounding thru the engine case.
