    Stx 900 wire

    There is a black wire with red stripes it has a round lug it's quite long and comes off the main harnes.
    Its around the starter motor area.
    Has anybody got an idea what it does and where it goes?
    Thanks ski.

    OK , let me recheck my memory. The six MM stud on the starter is the positive, the [red] wire to it should be coming out of the electrical box from the + side of the starter relay. Should have current when you press the starter button. Most factory negative wires were hooked to the starter between the two mounting bolts. This was a large all black wire directly from the battery and mounted between the starter bolts with a short six MM bolt. I still feel the small black /red stripe wire is a ground and it can go any where on the motor. Hope this helps......

    The post on the side of the starter is the positive (+). The rear of the starter (between the 2 mounting bolts) is the negative (-).
