 In the early models (typically, 1993-earlier),​ **components were grounded to the frame** at a nearby point while power was distributed throughout the system on a minimal number of wires in the wiring harness. There could be as many as a dozen points on the frame used for grounding. The front lights & instruments were grounded thru a connecting strap between the fork risers & the handlebars. In the early models (typically, 1993-earlier),​ **components were grounded to the frame** at a nearby point while power was distributed throughout the system on a minimal number of wires in the wiring harness.

 **Beginning in 1994**, the wiring harness itself began to carry ground wires to various components. The wiring harness by then consisted of many separate power wires to multiple locations, with a number of circuit breakers protecting the various circuits from overload. **Beginning in 1994**, the wiring harness itself began to carry ground wires to various components.
