Hi all, I have a project V-star 650 that Iím trying to put back together (Iím putting some progress pictures here: https://www.starbikeforums.com/forum...tml#post988082
), and it seems that I failed to take adequate pictures during the tear down, and now one of the wires has me pretty stumped.
Hereís a picture:
Itís a light blue wire sheathed in black (lighter than the other blue wires on the bike), and it goes from where Iím holding it in the picture, up the frame to the top of the shock alongside the main wiring harness (in its own sheathing), goes into the main wiring harness just behind the carb intake at the top of the frame, and appears to go back down towards the battery area, wrapped in the main harness. I havenít been able to locate where it comes out, and before I start cutting the harness open to trace it, I just thought I would ask here. The other end must go to a fuse or relay, but I can't seem to find the other end of the light blue wire. Iíve looked all through the shop manual and the wiring diagram, and still wasnít able to figure it out. I know the wire is in the right general location because I didnít cut the original zip tie, but thereís about a foot of wire, and therefore a foot radius where it could go. This shouldnít be hard, but for the life of me, I canít find a little screw anywhere that it would attach to. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Also, while weíre here Ė do you see where I grounded the negative battery lead (between the lowest engine mount and the exhaust header)? I donít really like this grounding point because the Ďchromeí/plastic cover also attaches here, and it seems like it should be sandwiched in more solid metal. My understanding is that the exact location isnít crucial as long as itís a solid connection to the frame, but does anyone know where this is actually supposed to go?
Thanks a lot for the help in advance!!
