Default Earth lead route

Just showing the route for anyone who wants to move the earth lead from the top of the crankcase to the earth post at top of primary inner.
No need to buy a new lead as the original is plenty long enough.

Pic sent!
Makes it so much easier to access battery. Leads are well known for coming loose.
