    Does anyone know where the Negative Terminal Ends?

    I have been trying to trace the route of the Negative lead from the battery. I'm trying to find out if it ends in a major earthing point on the frame (or something like that). The cable leave the Negative post on the battery and gets covered in black automotive protective fabric before disappearing off under the right hand side of the tank.

    Does anyone know where it goes from there please?

    Hi, from main cable it will reduce down in stages to feed all the other earths, or just end on frame of bike, normally behind or underneath a load of other cables, plugs, relays, boxes etc the only way to really see is to start stripping back panel, pipes, parts, tape and then follow it. Unfortunately thereís no easy or cheats way to do it if youíre not able to actually see/follow cable directly. Sorry

    Hi, itís like I said in post the front wheel on a 800 is 21í whereís mines a 19í I understand I may have to do some magic with front mud guards height. However the spindle on the 800 is slightly different to my 700, Iím interested to know if my spindle would work ok with the 800s wheel or not? This way I can use the spoked wheels when going off road and the mag wheels for every day use if that makes sense?
