It all looks right, let's hope it works.

The first time doing this I used a steering wheel puller to pull my flywheel from the shaft covering my stator. However when I screwed the steering wheel puller on, I threaded the screws in too far, and when I began turning the middle bolt with a wrench, it causes the motor to turn over and those screws then scared along the stator...
Once I had the flywheel off, I immediately spotted the damage, and tried to re solder over the coils and cover them up with silicone. (It was all I could think of) I then continued floating the ground wire and reassembling everything. So when I was done it looked something like this.
After I had it all back together I tried starting the bike to see if it had worked and to no suprise, there was no spark!
So after thinking over it all I decided to bite the bullet and buy a new stator for $150 on eBay.. It came in yesterday and I have floated the ground on this one just now, and I believe it all looks correct, but I won't know until tomorrow until I put it all
back together. Fingers crossed it a works right... Anything you guys can see I might have missed??
Here's where I routed the wire out of the back and up with the main harness.

Let us know if it works. Fortunately, on your bike the ignition system and lighting system are independent of each other. So if the white coil on the stator is intact it should spark regardless of whether the lighting system works.
