    2001 Seadoo GTX RFI ground locations

    I recently bought this ski with the battery wires disconnected so I'm about to put the engine back in i just rebuilt and need to know the ground locations. I see the small grounds from the wiring harness that go to the mag housing, but where do you put the large ground from the battery? Manual is not helpful.

    I also found a long thinner ground wire that was burnt but not hooked up. Are there 2 ground from the battery?

    Big ground goes to starter,there is a "lug" sticking off the starter for it.

    Take a pic of your other wire...

    The other ground looked home made and I threw it away. The ground wire I have won't reach the starter as I see the lug where it would mount.

    It will reach a bolt hole behind the rear engine mount right below the cylinder on the block. Will that be OK for a ground location?
