    There should be only 1 ground cable coming from the battery... Inside your Cdi box area just look for the black wire, they should be all ground wires.

    there should be a small wire running from a bolt on the front cover going to the cylinder head

    The big ground wire off the battery goes to the starter motor. And yes there is a ground strap from the front cover to the head area. And the rest of the grounds are inside the electrical center where the CDI is.
