Its the rainy season here in Seattle and I'm stripping and fixing anything and everything on my 929.

The headlight harness contains the obvious bits;
1) 2 turn signals
2) 1 low beam, 2 high beam
3) 2 relays (turn signal & headlight)
4) Cluster connector
5) 1 mystery ground connector ==> burnt to hell. (2nd pic)

When i first got the bike, it had elec issues, i did a quick and dirty fix by simply grounding the low beam to the frame, well now its time to step it up.

Do you guys have that connector too im talking about? What if I cut it out, interweave all the wires from and run a thick ground to the frame?

its not actually a connector. all the green wires in the front come together there, not really sure why and it doesn't even show that in the service manual. never could figure out why they did that, probably as a way to check stuff.

Yeah, i couldnt find it in the diagram either.

Since they are all grounds, what do you think of my idea of running a thick ground to the frame to clean that mess up.

don't know if its good or not because I'm not all that great with electrical stuff. probably why my headlights haven't worked in close to a year.

that was exactly my issue, no headlights, cluster light or turn signals, until i spliced a ground into the low beam wire.

I imagine my stuff didnt work prior because of that melted SOB.

=> Someone with electrical know-how, good idea to ground it??

I have no idea but I'd say it probably is a good idea.
It's quite common for that block to melt so search the forums and see what info is already around.
