    spark plug wire grounding posts, where?

    OK I was getting ready to do a compression check on my '98GP800. I know most skis have a nub to connect the plug wires to when turning over the engine with the plugs removed. I bought this ski last september and can't seem to find these posts. Does the GP800 not have these?

    See pics of engine bay.

    Thanks

    I usually pull the wires and route them down into the hull. On an 800 I dont have a clue. 1200s or 1300s dont have a "grounding pole" either to my recollection.

    Here is the Service Manual for the GP800
    Goto the Electrical section and blow up (explode) the diagrahm tpo see if it does.

    Thanks for the link. It didn't show any posts. Is the manual the same for GP & the GPR? I thought the engines were the same, just different hulss. Is this correct?

    Yeah, I just don't think they exist. I know there is no mention of using them when clearing a water filled engine in my GP1200R's owners manual... so I guess it's ok to crank without them grounded.
