You're done. The secondary ground is only for 2002 models

On the main engine ground, why is the oil fitler there??????? Mine is on the very BACK of the engine nowhere near this picture and I ran my ground to a point on the oppisite side of the bike under the big chrome cover on the left side as you sit on it, I forget what this piece is. Its a common part there. I did it in 02 when biglry was still working out things and so on. Well you remember, you were there. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow and post it so you can see what I'm talking about.

That IS the back of the engine, see the coolant tank at the top of the pic. The camera is looking straight up at the bottom/rear of the engine

But I mean pointing straight out the back. I put the filter wrench cap on the filter and feed my LONG extention through the tank area where the overflow line attaches and into the filter wrench. The filter sticks straight out toward the rear wheel. This appears to be up on the side and kind of on an angle. Maybe I'm looking at it wrong but that is how it looks to me.

I just finished this mod/repair. Its pouring down rain outside so I cant ride but I can tell from the way it idles and revs up it's different. I found a bunch of oxidation around the connections at the coil and my battery terminals were finger tight. I can't wait to give it a whirl.

P.S.
I did this on a 2007 1800T

WOW!!!!!! I can't believe I waited so long to do this fix. All I can say is I have a whole new ride I can't believe what a difference a little sanding and fileing makes, I didn't think I needed to do the fix because I thought I was running good but wow was I surprised, COMPLETELY ELIMINATED my decel popping!!!!THANK YOU FOR POSTING THE EASY WALK THRU INSTRUCTIONS.

Ground fix not working, help!

Performed the ground fix twice, followed the instructions to the letter, and it runs great for a 100 miles or so and then back to chitty. What's next? Anything else I can try before I have to take it to the stealer.
