Folks,

Just got my CL160 frame home from powdercoat, and yep - sure looks nice.

However, before we go installing the electricals, a few questions about grounds. The powdercoat shop protected all of the threaded holes in the frame - so the coil mounts. horn mounts, condenser mounts all have nice clean threaded holes. Are good clean bolts and threads sufficient to ground these components, or do I need to grind down the powder to clean metal under where they mount?

I do realize that I will need clean metal at one of the rear motor mounts for a good battery ground, and also at the rectifier but anywhere else?

Thoughts greatly appreciated!

Just clean bolts will likely suffice, but I'd run a main ground "buss" just to be certain. (yes, I tend to be a bit anal about good/clean grounds....)

You could chase the threads just to make sure they make a good solid ground.

What I do,,,, and just my opinion,,,, is even though the threads are enough I still take some of the paint off under and connection and I coat that with tune up grease so that they wont rust there. I have chased so many electrical problems to bad grounds that I tend to over do them now maybe.
