r65 full fairing wiring

made the fundamental mistake despite photographing as i stripped it of not drawing wiring

I've taken the full fairing off and photographed the wiring before i removed each part-or so i thought

i have a long brown (earth?) which i cannot source
can anyone say where it should go please

i had clock and volt meter and the central fairing light (running light?)
plus built in indicators
and the mahoosive headlight
o its an 81

Get a wiring diagram. They are in the Clymer's or Hayne's manuals. Traditionally a brown wire is ground,

Can't open photos because Photobucket wants to update my software.

hate to say this...but that harness has been hacked to death. All those crimp connectors make me cringe. If it were my bike, I would do one of two things.

1. Solder and heat shink all the junctions
2. Simply buy a new harness.

I went with option 2 on my 81 r80

Yep. Refurb or replace the hacked harness.
