On my EVO ('91 Dyna), it goes to the breaker panel (where ever that is on your bike) and ties into the MAIN 30A breaker. Same point as the hot (red) lead from the key switch. The other wire coming out of the main is also BK, but it goes up to the kill switch on the bars.

Re: voltage regulator wiring

So, you're building a bike and you're not posting pictures for us to see as you make progress. That's just no right.

The positive lead goes from the positive terminal on the battery to the post on the rear of starter. The negative lead goes from the negative terminal to one of the starter mounting bolts (front one). The small wire goes to the starter relay. On mine, it is the "87" terminal. I think that wire is tan (TN).

Re: voltage regulator wiring

Sounds like he is defusing a bomb or finishing up on his bike...! In either case watch out for the BLUE wire!

Actually you should have a simple schematic of bike you are modifiying, but then again, with a handle like "the Riddler" it may require the "--caped crusader and his sidekick" to help you out without it. Look in the Self Help section under electrical and look at some of Glider' tips and simplified schematics to help you out if you don't have the formal wiring diagrams.
