    I surely will succeed! I have all the parts just gonna check a few things and then should be on the way to running, and then riding. Seeing my issues are very possible to deal with I should be done fairly quickly and easily.

    I did move them but if you're talking about getting rid of the second ground for the battery I have not done that yet. What's really odd to me is that it doesnt show it on the OEM blueprint. I wonder why it was even added or if my battery connections are aftermarket or from a different bike.

    Gonna test the main ground to ensure it's doing its job and remove that extra ground, aslong as it's just extra! I guess a second ground doesnt hurt but if the main tests fine I dont see why I'd need it.

    Gonna have the regulator ground where the second battery ground was instead of the battery terminal to ensure if a problem happens that the only piece failing will be the only one damaged

    The "extra" ground is ground reinforcement. It ensures other stuff have a good ground when the "main" ground is loaded up. During cranking is a time when the positive and negative cables will be loaded up - notice the positive cable also has the "extra" split off that occurs at the battery terminal and not at the other end (starter relay/solenoid) for the same reason.

    It was added by someone that doesn't understand the system. Grounds are a common loop. Only one battery ground to frame is needed. That is why the factory uses one.
