I've added star washers and tightened up my battery terminal bolts after some recent mods. Per several threads and my own experience, the battery bolts can loosen easily.

On a Honda Valkyrie I had, it was often recommended to make sure the negative ground strap was kept tight, where it connected to the bike's frame. Do the Cross bikes have a ground strap like that, and if so can anyone direct me to the area on the bike where it connects? (Did a search on this, and came up empty.)

90% of bikes and all cars have ground strap from battery goes straight to motor. Now in our case once you ground the motor the ground goes threw the motor to the frame and spreads threw out the bike.
When it comes to electrical we have ground wires to increase grounding for lights and so on.

So no we don't have a ground strap

VJ: thanks for the info. Just trying to keep on top of winter PM -- one less thing to do (compared to my former Valk).
