    2012 VX110 deluxe Grounding wire

    I bought a 2012 VX110 Deluxe from a rental company. More I dig into this ski the more oddities I find. The ground (negative from the battery) goes to a bolt on the oil tank. The negative Battery cable from the starter is just lying on the bottom of the ski unhooked.

    Can anyone think of a reason this might have been done? Is this going to cause me any electrical problems in the future? Theoretically It seems like it should be fine to me.

    Thanks
    Scott

    The original wire is bad or has internal break - Too hard to reach and replace at starter end so a more accessible rout was chosen - As long as it's starting with no issues leave it be.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, starts well enough right now, sounds to me like it may need a new starter in a year or two.

    Thanks
