    That burnt wire is the Black ground wire that goes to the magneto stator (not the starter motor) inside the flywheel housing.

    You need to replace/repair the damaged wire(s), or replace the entire stator. The stator itself is under the flywheel, so getting it out requires removing the flywheel.

    BTW, this is why it is recommended that you disconnect the battery negative cable if there is any chance of the electrical box touching the battery.
