    All the grounds are good. Everything was just re-grounded when I did the wiring. All clean, all ok.
    The rotor was shorted. Rather than worry about it, I got the upgraded kit. Its the last thing electrical I needed to replace, and the only thing I haven't touched yet.
    Id rather not have it be a worry when Im further from my house. Sitting on the side of a freeway is no fun

    Getting dialed in.
    Nice looking project . It seems that they are seldom ever "finished", but the experience is half the fun. I have a similar bike ('83 R100) that I drug out of the back of a garage and am putting back on the road. It will be different than the original, but functional and fun. To me, it matters more that they are being used and enjoyed and less what the final product looks like.

    ^ thanks. Yeah Ill always be tinkering with it. Still not back on the road yet. Hopefully by this weekend.
    Received the kit form EME and installed. Turns out the rotor was not machined correctly and did not seat correctly on the snout of the crank. Have to say they do have excellent customer service however.

    Quick update to a very strange problem...
    After the kit was ordered from EME, the rotor they sent was not machined correctly, the second rotor showed up and I still could not get this thing to charge. I was pulling my hair out, everything was wired to spec and correct.
    After scouring Snobums articles, I found a rare circumstance where the rotor can have a slight reverse polarity/magnatism out of the box. As luck would have it, (or not) that was the case with the second rotor. I performed the fix, as described and now I'm happily charging.
    Holy crap that was frustrating...
