Again i cannot zoom in to the pic, but can see the reg/rec black box fins, and, the diode ( rectifier, 2 pin white plastic junction box ) for starter motor enable/dis enable, and, part of the electrics metal mounting tray....could you please post a side view of that side of the bike so the reg/rec etc can be seen along with the metal electrics tray, just to be sure.....
Useful schematic, had a quick scan ( again I cannot zoom in ) and could only find one earth green eyelet connection, below and to the right of the cdi unit. If correct, then this is the main earth for the electrics loom, other than the heavy black starter motor earth cable direct from the battery earth side to the frame, so the frame becomes "earth".
The other lights etc have a dedicated earth wire, an insulated earth return, or seem insulated earth return as the green main earth wire dioes not go direct to the battery earth.
The green wire in your pictures, is a a relatively heavy thick wire ??
You will be aware that tjhe green earth wires "join" inside the loom.
I would run 2 dedicated extra earth wires up to the headlight unit area and plum them into the existing green wire earth system.
One either side of the head stock from say the cdi bolt and coil bolt, to inside the headlamp shell earth points/wires.
You could even run a dedicated earth wire to the rear lights area as well and plum that into the green wire earth system back there.
Remember that the green earth wire eventually carries the full electrical load from the lights etc.., when it joins/connects to the frame.
Study the wiring diagram and satisfy your self about the earth system.
Now got another issue. Ugh. Everything is connected fuse box was broken on the bike so I found on the forum how to convert it to blade fuses, that is done. Bike didn’t run when I got it so not sure about anything. Now when. I turn the key main fus pops, so I’m guessing short somewhere but how to find it that is the big question.
Start by inspecting the harness for bare wires and at the same time check that the only wires plugged into a solid Green are also solid Green. The solid Green is a ground circuit so any power plugged in will act as a short.
Will do, left the garage frustrated tonight will try again tomorrow. Seems like nothing was going m6 way today. Tried to connect throttle cables looks like th3 ones I got a just little too short. Got reporo cables from 4 into 1 back in July and just tried it. I guess I will have to buy new.
Got cables sorted out, it helps to put them into the right holes. Guys from 4into1 really helped me with trying to figure it out. All I had to do just to step back and look at everything, it was right in front of me.
Still have an issue with blowing a fuse as soon as the key is turned to on. Checked the harbes nothing is visible, i haven't taken the insulation apart. Got a new starter solenoid thinking maybe that is the issue but no. Also, if I put a 20 amp fuse instead of 15 it doesn't blow that but everything is still dead no lights or any power going to the starter.
