You're done. The secondary ground is only for 2002 modelsi have the 2005 N and did the ground mod. as for as the secondary ground, there was'nt one. what do i do in this case? leave it alone? add another ground? any ideas while i have the bike apart? and doing the desmog while i have it down. two birds with one rock.
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 engineOn 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.
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.That IS the back of the engine, see the coolant tank at the top of the pic.

You didn't have to touch that ground. The ONLY ground you have to worry about is the "Common Electronics Ground" by the coilI was in the process of doing the chassis ground fix (among other things)...and in the process of removing the case bolt where ground was installed by Honda, apparently I twisted it clean in two So clean that I didn't even notice until I tried to put it back in and it wouldn't bite (The piece I got out is about 1 1/4" long with only about 1/2" of thread). Now I guess I gotta drop the exhaust and tap that sucker out
Thoughts or advice welcome...
It won't hurt but the ECU only ground through the front coil bolt. This is why it starts running badWhat about the "other" coil pack? it's on the other side of the frame "backbone", further back.
It serves the rear cylinder, and has stand-offs, but also has the same "painted frame" problem as the forward coil pack.
While I had the tank off to do the recommended ground procedures, it occurred to me that there was another coil pack and mightn't it also not have a good ground?
So, I cleaned that one too. Cleared off the paint with my Dremel, also took apart the coil-to-bracket connections, cleaned them up and lubed them with dielectric grease.
If one coil-to-frame ground needs cleaning, shouldn't they both?
Best of luck!
