ZXI 1100 Electrical Case Grounding
It appears the electrical case grounding is not correct in my ZXI 1100. If I measure voltage across the positive (+) terminal of my battery my my ground lug inside the case, I show no voltage. If I do the same across the (+) terminal of the battery to the engine case, I show 12V.
My question is how does the electrical case get grounded? If it isn't grounding properly, it could be the cause of my electrical bugs.

if the elect case isnt grounded to the battery or the engine you may have damage to the components inside the elect case.
temp install a ground to the case and battery.

i bought a 1100 zxi and the owner said he changed to an aftermarket ignition and it burned the ground wire into inside the case. he installed a wire from case to battery and repaired the the burned one solved problem. i assume these skis need more of a ground than they come from the factory.

I added a secondary ground strap to mine. Beforehand, I could never get less than 80 ohms from the case to ground. Now I get under 1 ohm.
