If you are talking about the wire that is on the small post of the solenoid, then it goes to the "starter relay" under the seat next to the main fuse. The ground from the start button operates the relay which in turn puts out battery voltage to operate the starter solenoid.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

Please take the time to edit your profile to show your location. City, State/Province and Country. It is easier to help you if we know where you are.
