Backtabush-Glad to hear your making headway make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside Haha .
The image that you posted of the frayed wires.....is that from a Grizzly? If so is it the area of the harness where the stator / reg/rec / and cdi connectors all tie into the main harness? I'll feel warmer and fuzzier once I get this puppy all squared away. The problem is not so much figuring it out but not having enough free time. Between work and other family/life commitments and maybe a few hours sleep here or there I just can't spend the time that I need to, to just get things done. The owner of this Grizzly is retired but I'm not retired so time is tight. I like helping others so I need to win the lottery so I can retire instantly and step up the charity repair work......a coffee and a sandwich and I'm happy!
