I don't know exactly on your model. Most of the models you would remove the seat and look for the black ground wire from the battery going to a screw or bolt into the frame. There is no place that is more grounded than the negative post on your battery. From that negative post to anywhere on the frame where you can make a solid clean connection to the frame is as good as any. I reccomend you try making multiple ground to frame connections on your bike. (at least two) for safetty reasons.

Where is the Loose ground wire on the frame

Loose ground wires can cause all kinds of problems, and since ground wires are located in multiple locations specific to each model, each wire must be checked to assure connection.
If you have a starter problem, check the positive connection to the starter as well.
Remove seat and side covers and look closely at the frame to find black and/or black with another color attached to the frame. Remove, clean and reinstall each connection. Paint, rust and other corrosion can degrade connections. Also check your wires for corrosion, especially the battery wires.

Ground connection

I'm not clear on what you are referring to. This is on a lawn tractor- correct? And there is a poor ground connection on the negative battery cable to the frame? Also, I'm not clear what you mean by " to make any noise". DO you mean to start the tractor? If this is the case- make sure the battery cables and the battery posts are clean- very clean. Clean the frame where the negative cable attaches, and clean the cable end. All connections need to be clean - no rust or corrosion. The negative cable can be attached to the frame at any point, so the cable can be moved by drilling a new hole in the frame, but usually this is not necessary if the original hole is cleaned of rust. If you need further help let me know.

Ground wire

Sometimes a battery cable (near the cable terminal end at the battery) can get acidic corrosion (the "crud" that some batteries get on the terminals) in the wires under the insulated outer layer, and the individual cable strands can start breaking.

99' Zx9r press starter button and bike clicks then loses all power!

Sounds like you have a bad connection at one of your battery cables. Check the connections where the cables attach to the battery, where the cables attach to the starter solenoid, where the cable attaches to the starter, and where the negative cable attached to the frame. If all connections are clean and tight look for signs of corrosion inside of the cables themselves, and if everything else checks out good, then have the battery itself tested.

Park the Suzuki motorcycle on flat level ground and allow the engine to cool. Remove the screws or bolts from along the edge of the seat.

Pull the seat off the bike's frame and set it aside. Pull the wire harness off the top of the battery, or loosen the cable connector and pull the cables off the battery.


Pull the battery from the plastic box. Place the new battery into the plastic box in the same position as the old one.

Connect the cables to the new battery, or connect the wire harness to the battery. Replace the seat to the bike's frame opposite the way you removed it.

Starter will not turn over just clicks even when jumping

Check battery ground and ground to motorcycle frame. It is a good idea to remove ground wire and "scuff" lightly to attachment point both at battery and frame. Check battery cables for breaks or melted area.

Where do jumper cable on virago go?

The ground (black) connection can be connected to floating ground, or any metal part of the frame of the vehicle.
The car can be started before attaching the cables. You should be able to start the bike as soon as it's connected.

Well, you know where the battery is located on your bike (Under your seat in your RH cover)
A trickle charger have a black and red alligator/clamp lead. Battery normally on the top side near their posts have a plus ("+") and minus ("-") indicators. Clip your red cable to your positive and black to negative, leave it overnight ( at least 6-8 hours) unclip and give the bike a go. That sghould do it.
Good enough for a thumbs up?

Stalled and has no power

Check the battery cables by removing them as they have been known to oxidied under the bolts. Check the negative side (ground) especially where the cable connects to frame again by removing the bolt and cleaning the frame and connection. The negative (ground) connection can also be connected to a bolt just above the starter motor. Check this as well.
