Burnt ground

Hello fellow RR riders. i've been on these fourms for awhile and i didnt want my first post to be a problem question but it is and im sorry. Here the problem, i've been riding and the bike would just die, no lights (dash or headlights) and no fuel pump. Did some looking and after many hours ( 4 to be exact) i found the problem to be a burnt wire. Its in the little yellow box of green wires. Now im guessing there all grounds due to the fact there green and every ground seems to be green. Would i be able to just cut the wires and put them in a pig tail and ground it on the frame??? The bike is an 05 with HIDs and an intergrated tail.

Green = ground therefore yes you can ground it to the frame



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

It has been a while since i sold my 03 RR and from
memory i think this wire is connected to the Rectifier/ Regulator
but to make sure if u can take a picture and post it that would
be very helpful

This happened to another member awhile back. See if you can clean up the connections and plug it back in. If not find an insulated connector and rewire all the grounds. T

I have the same problem now.
You can see the little burnt spot on the yellow box.

What do I have to do to fix this?
Can I cut the burnt wire and ground it on the wire next to it?
