    Electrical box wiring 97 Polaris SLTX

    I bought a 97 SLTX that someone tore apart and decided not to fix it. I bought the stator update kit. Just putting the electrical box back together and i was wondering what wire goes to the other side of the Circuit breaker, theres a red wire that is hooked to one side. and wondering is it the red/purple wire that hooks to the other side? also the ground wire that goes on the outside of the box theres 2 ring terminals on it.... where do they both go? one to the battery and the other goes to......? thanks

    Welcome to Green Hulk !

    Yes,the red/pur wire goes to the other side of the circuit breaker.

    With the "update kit" the black/ground wire that runs from the elect box to battery is not used.
    I can;t remember if that wire attaches to the coil mount/ground or directly to the circuit board. But it should have 1 round/ring terminal.
    Please show us a picture of the other ring.
    Can you trace it/where does it lead from ?

    the 2 ring terminals come off the same wire.... one is about 5 or 6 inchs from the other... the terminal on the end i would say goes to the battery judging by the size of the terminal, the other terminal is definetly for a smaller bolt. If i didnt use this wire how would you ground anything in the electrical box...? I wiring diagram would really help.

    Welcome to the Hulk

    You can find plenty of technical information, including wiring diagrams, through the links in my signature.

    Posting a few clear and detailed photos are often very helpful in situations like this. We can often spot things that look incorrect, or sometimes things that are simply missing.

    How 'taken apart' was this machine?
