this is what i want to achieve
CDI on AC (coil, etc)
lights, horn, blinkers etc on DC
my dilema is, it seems that the regulator is earthed to the chassis, if i chuck a rectifier in, and wire in a battery, will my battery also be earthed?
i was under the impression that the DC light circuit would run a floating ground back to the battery.
if you look at the wiring diagram of a wrf400, the stator is earthed and also the black wire coming from the regulator, i know there is an earth wire attached at the coil, but is there another earth wire coming from the regulator earthed somewhere?
i can imagine how confusing this is. Rich, if your out there, i need your help!
cheers - Brett

It's very simple. All you have to do is find a good point to tie in a ground (earth) wire. Get a 16 or 18 AWG wire and connect it to a good point on the frame. That wire goes to one of the AC poles on the rectifier. After that point, all the lights' grounds connect to the DC (-) from the battery. It says this on my website but it's buried deep in one of the paragraphs.
