Anyone want to tell me where this goes? (V shaped heavier gauge wire with 3 bolt eyelets) assuming it's an engine ground

Don't recall ever seeing that on either of my C-10s.
Are you sure it's from your bike?

If the wire is black, it sounds like the ground harness for my old honda, battery, frame, engine.  The C10 ground harness only has 2 bolt eyelets and 1 bullet connector.

Did you pull it from your C10?
The OP, Derg, his one and only post.
Has not responded about where the wire is from.

Anyone that dwonloads, and uses a third party software, to allow photobucket any further usage, deserves whatever happens... nothing against you personally, but I simply refuse to use any service related to photobuttlick any longer, after they hosed me, and everu other person using them... as far as I am concerned, they can try to pay bills now, on their own, with lessening money coming in from all their advertizers, ... I'm fed up with them. They completely hosed everyone that used them as a host.
 >:(
Sorry, I just won't download any more software from them, nor use them ever again... as far as my thousands of photos stored on their system... they can gag on them. >:D

The extension added to chrome was not created by photobucket.  I'm only guessing it was created by some software writing geek type that got hosed by photobucket as well.  I'm not backing photobucket in any way shape or form....never have, never will.  I just want to see the pics.  I would suggest that people click on attachments and other options and upload a pic to the COG site instead of using a third party site like photobucket.  If they have a problem resizing the photo to meet size limitations, one method is to go to the photo on my computer using picasa (free from google) then email that photo using picasa to my gmail account.  Picasa automatically resizes the photo to under 100k so when you download it from gmail to your computer, all the resize work is done and it isn't in the least bit difficult or technical.  Easy peasy.  If picture posters wouldn't keep using photobucket,  I would have no need for the extension for chrome.  Change comes hard and slow is all I can say.....and it rarely changes because I want it to.  I can't change the rest of the world, but I can change what I do.  Just trying to help if anyone will listen.

Doesn't matter. The OP doesn't care enough to fix the pic, or even return to further comment, I suggest this thread is going nowhere and should be locked until such time as the OP returns.

Picture is there , clear as day . In Harry's post . How bout trying to help identify it for the potential new member rather than running him off . We all know how silly the picture posting is here . I rarely bother anymore .

Some kind of grounding wire - I can't imagine where from though.

Well, it was a very vague posting in the firstplace....
No mention of model year, which helps, or any possible upgrades, like a ZZR alternator installed, or whatever... or even why he is asking.. like... did he buy a box-o-parts.... and doesn't have a clue if its even a conni part? Or was this with, or installed on a ZG in the firstplace....

More information needs to be given... a lot more....

So commenting any further is moot...
Kinda like first post "where does this bolt go???". "Helpppppp"....

Imho, that part is NOT of any ZG1000.
And the photo is not clear enough to tell if the OEM ground wire was modified to add on a piece to run to a ground point from the engine ground, to the alternator mounting bolt... which would be my guess only, for the way it looks... but isn't an OEM part...

Looks like the ground wire from a early '80s honda cb900.  Battery, frame, engine (rubber engine mounts).
