Question Where do the 07 lights ground?

My 07 starst/runs fine, but all the lights and horn are intermitantly dim, the turn signals blink fast or barely at all. Bike has 1250 miles on it. I checked the battery cable and retightened it, which seemed to fix the problem for about 2 blocks of riding then went back to wierdness. Seems like if I wiggle the ground wire at the battery post the lights will correct uncorrect. Is there a gound under the tank to the frame that is possible loose?

Any help would be appreciated.

Follow the harness. Somewhere you'll find a big wire that's grounded to the frame or engine. Unbolt it, clean up the connection, and tighten back up.

Try jumpering the negative battery terminal to the frame and see if the problem clears up. If the heavy ground connects to the engine or starter, you may have to make a heavy jumper wire up and make a positive ground connection betaween the engine and frame.
