Re: need help asap
Yeah it sounds like an earth wire, of which there are a few. A bad connection, or none at all in your case can throw up some wierd symptoms. Make sure it's clean and the frame where it bolts. If there's bits hanging off like that, it would be prudent to have the bodywork off and check other bolts. It depends on the condition and age of your bike, but checking connectors and earth points is a good idea every once in a while. I use silicone grease on electrical connectors to prevent or slow corrosion.
