    Sportcity 250 ground wire points to the frame

    Hey,
    can anyone tell where are the ground wire connections to the frame?
    I have weird charging problem and I am waiting for a new voltage regulator and thought it was a good idea to check all the ground wires but can not locate them.

    I don't own a Sportcity but I would download a manual and find what they say.
    Italian scoots owned: 2003 Scarabeo 150, 1998 Italjet Velocifero, 2009 Vespa GTS 250, 2012 Vespa S50, 2007 BV 250, 1977 150 Sprint Veloce (future project) and Vespa ET2 (future project)

    No help from the manual, I reckon it so basic stuff that they have not even bothered to put it there.
    I have found two ground points on the start motor mounting but would like find the chassis ground points.
    Tried to follow the ground cable from the battery but it ends up to big main harness and I do not wanna tier it down.
    My voltage regulator fail and I have read from many places that bad ground/earth may have caused it, that`s why I am trying find those points.
    Do not wanna blow up new voltage regulator right away.

    My friend who works as a electrician told me to put extra ground/earth wire from the chassis to the battery negative.
    So, problem solved.

    Been kind of busy with other stuff however that is sometimes the most simple option. Somehow I have it in mind that the factory ground from the battery is near the voltage regulator in the belly pan area.
