1981 GPz550.

I think I might have screwed up by powder coating the frame ... where are the grounds for the wiring harness?

I can read women's moods pretty well but I can't read a wiring diagram to SAVE MY LIFE.

Where should I look with my eyes to make sure the system is grounded?

thanks

If the engine case is bolt in rubber damper into the frame you need an extra negative (ground) terminal wire to the frame.

In right side do you mean front brake lever side or?

I see this ground on the back of the engine case. Is this what you are referring to?

Pic attached. Hopefully.

That's it but you can run the harness ground to a frame bolt or battery.

The big negative battery cable goes to any of the rear clutch cover bolts on the engine. I use one near the top rear. From there I run a 14ga to a bolt on the frame near the battery box hangers. Then I attach harness grounds to that bolt.

Don't know if this vintage analog device is available any longer but, once set correctly, it has been invaluable for it's intended purpose.

It never worked well on hormonal 'tween girls though...
