    Stupid question time.

    Despite the wiring diagrams showing two wires from the signal lights, why do my signal lights (front at least since I don't have any rear ones from when I bought it) only have one wire coming from them? Is it that the bolt of the housing is the ground side of the circuit?

    Hi XSWestgate,
    the signal grounds through it's threaded stem.
    There should be a black insulated grounding wire with a brass ring terminal that's trapped underneath
    the stem retaining nut on the signal end and a bullet connector that plugs into the bike's grounding wire system.

    Awesome, thanks! that's what I get for tearing out the whole harness without paying much attention to the connections.:shootme: The harness was garbage and a brand new one sped up the build by months based on my electrical skills.
