    What's this broken wire for?

    Been doing some repairs on my Polari Pro 785 and and noticed this wire was running under the drive shaft. All the wires are ok except the black one which is severed. What's it for?

    That would be the Black ground wire for the magneto stator.

    Clean it up and splice it back together with a heat shrink sealing butt connector.

    Thanks K447 - I had to cut out about four inches of badly corroded wire and patch up with copper wire. I soldered the two together and shrink wrapped both connections with heat gun. So all is good. Just out of curriosity what would happen if this wire wasn't connected properly?

    run like crap if at all. that is the ground (return) from the stator /charger back to the ebox. looks like it was flappi9ng around and got rubbed by the drive shaft. Zip tie it up somewhere out of the way

    Cheers seabin, I've tidied up all the cable and strapped the excess back behind the box. Used some nice dicrete red tape too! Oh and put the battery in the right way round.
