    Battery Ground...

    Does anyone know where the frame ground line is attached from the negative battery lead on a 2001 F650 Dakar? I need to check the connection because of some Speedo and trip issues I am having before I replace my Motronic...

    I don't want to sound smartass, but just follow from the battery and see where it goes.

    If you were familiar with the F650GS series of that year, the battery cable is located deep inside a harness that is hard to follow in the frame and sub-assemblies... That is why I asked the question here. If I had a manual I also would have had the answer.

    The manuals sometimes aren't all that good, so you might not have the answer. I just replaced a battery on my '03, but I had no reason to observe where the ground is. I doubt that it's very far.
    I think you'll really like the bike. Mine is the second one I've had. I sold the first one (also an '03) with 36000 miles on it. It was running great, had nothing wrong with it. I just didn't think I needed it anymore and with my R1150R and K75 and all the other stuff, I thought I needed the room. Well, that was a mistake. So three years later I went in search of anonther one and found an '03 with 5000 miles.

    Good luck !
