    Ricky I hope he means paddock stand. Even then, it's overfilled.

    No idea what you're referring to.

    I didn't call you Tony... those were 2 separate paragraphs...

    I will speak your favorite language... A PICTURE!



    That is the main chassis ground. Basically the path to ground for everything.
    .. Disregard that second wire. That is my Six5 Approved Grounding Mod...

    Ricky,

    Should have taken a picture of the engine on a bench and not my bike...



    Remove bolt. Clean bolt shoulder and engine surface. Take ground strap, clean it with a brass brush to get it nice and shiny. Put some dielectric grease if you are kinky. Reassemble.

    .....
    Eliott, if you are referring to this photo Josh posted, then yes, I agree, it looks like that single Spade connector on the main loom ground.
    It is a good time to get rid of it, while he is in there messing with the wires....

    Thanks for catching that.
