The Debaters

MODERATER:
"Be it resolved that BMW motorcycles being designed by the finest German engineers, would never have a short cut or otherwise poorly designed feature in a crucial part of their motorcycles; and in particular the wiring.

"Dennis, you are arguing against the resolution."

DENNIS:  The stock negative ground wire was thin gauge and bolted to a 10mm screw in aluminum, and shared duty as holding the speedometer cable in place.



The negative ground should be substantially mounted.



BMW engineers are as short-sighted as any.

Hi Dennis, the new ground strap runs to the rear cradle/shock mount.
Ground to the engine could easily be lost as the rear section is only bolted to the front cradle and the front cradle is where the engine/ starter are grounded?
