Simple wire question

After hitting a deer and smashing up the RC , I am almost done rebuilding it. One thing I forgot is where this little connection is suppose to go. Instrument panel is on and everything is functioning, but it won't start. I have 13+ volts everywhere. Any ideas?

Doesn't look like an OEM connector. Do you have a power commander? - my money would be on a earth\ground lead.

Yes, I have a Power Comander. That that wire comes straight out of a wiring harness. Also, my motor spins strong But it won't start. I checked the fuses and they are all good.

That is not a stock connector. Dose it come out of the wire harness for the Power Commander? If so, that is the ground for it.

Yes, it comes out of the Power Commander harness. Shouldn't that be hooked up to the Negative on the Battery?

Yep. As long as that's the only hiccup, you should be in business.

Well, I wished it was, but it still won't start. I have put about 30 hours into this bike in two days trying to figure this out.

At this point I am hoping it's the BANK ANGLE SENSOR . I wonder if you can reset those?

I've been there with the hours of electrical work.

thats every wire out of the bike, cut and rerouted.

you can bypass the BAS by putting a jumper wire between the red and green wires. IIRR.

Not meaning to be a smart ass, but you have checked the kill switch, right?

Did you look for cut or chaffed wires on the front, it looks like it took a pretty good hit. Also make sure you side stand and neutral switches are making ground.

James thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much. When I decided to do the jump wires on the BAS I found out something. It was TURNED. I made it right side up and it started right up.

Let this be a lesson folks. Your BANK ANGLE SENSOR can not be UPSIDE DOWN or your bike will NEVER START.

Ok...I got to get this all together and hopefully no other surprises, I have a HOT HOT HOT date in Memphis on Sat.
