  • Roadstar ground cable

    Question, where does the battery ground cable connect to the frame? Thanks.

    Stock, is connected to the allen bolt that holds the dip-stick tube on the oil tank. I think the stock ground is a little cheesy.
    I have the heavy cables for the starter and ground, and made the ground cable longer to go to one of the bolts that hold the transfer case to the engine.

      Thank you very much for the quick reply! And the photo.
      I think on my custom build I will connect to the area that you did. Thank you.

    The other small wire that comes off the ground cable is the ground for all the other low amperage accessories on the bike. When I connected the new ground cable to the oil tank the voltage drop from the battery to the starter casing with the starter engaged was 0.06 volts so the oil tank is sufficient. Just make sure the tank bolt is clean. So far as I've been able to determine there aren't any ground wires connected to the frame.
