The main ground comes from your main power source(the battery). The negative terminal post is where your ground attaches from the main wire harness. There are many other ground wired that come from the wiring harness. You will know which they are because they will be screwed against the frame. Good luck!

Buy a manual. It will save you money in the long run. When you say "From Scratch" do you mean a complete engine rebuild as well? If so you would be better buying a different bike and doing a rebuild in slow time. The only reason I say this is that, if you have you ask for advice in a forum before you have started, then you don't have the skills to do the job quickly.

The best thing to do is to visit your local Kymco dealer with proof of ownership and the vehicle identification number and have them get you another key. Hot wiring the ignition could be a unsafe thing to do and it could damage other electrical components.

Might be the switch depending where in the circuit the fuse link is but I suggest you remove the heater plugs and check them on a battery first - it isn't unknown for one to have a short circuit...

The rev limiter is probably in the software the management computer or electronic ignition is loaded with and would need to be changed by someone with a very clever piece of diagnostic equipment.

The manufacturer probably set the limiter well above the point of maximum torque so there is unlikely to be any practical advantage to changing it.
Few engines are produced to be mechanically unsafe at an rpm where the power is still building and there is little sense in operating any engine beyond the point of peak power, whatever that is for your engine, so it would be reasonable to say the engine will be mechanically safe up to that point - now you need to find a copy of the engine torque/BHP graph...

De CAT an exhaust only for off-road use or if local regulations allow the use on the road and if local regulations do allow it, life could become difficult if the bike is ridden out of the area.

If the CAT is contained in a separate exhaust can it is fairly straightforward to cut it out and weld in a suitably shaped and sized piece of pipe. If the CAT is integral with the silencer box life is more difficult. The end of the box will have to be removed to take the monolith out especially if it is a metal monolith though it might be possible to smash a ceramic monolith to pieces and remove it a piece at a time through the inlet pipe.

Find the recommended pressure for the brand of tyres fitted to your bike in that brand's tyre application catalogue - these are often slightly different to the pressures with the original tyres.

You did not give the model number of the particular maddog that you have but this is the closest thing I could find. Hope this helps>

Sounds like the Ignition timing is out if it is firing through the carburetor. It means the engine is firing too soon before TDC (top dead centre) and is throwing the piston backwards instead of onwards. Did you check the compression and that the valves were sealing properly after the rebuild? You can get combustion via the inlet valve, which exits via the carburetor.
