Hi Everyone: This might be a stupid question but here it goes. Can anyone tell me how many positive wires should attached to the battery and how many negative wires attached to the battery. I have to heavy ones attached to positive and one to negative. One of the wires that was attached to my positive is black. My bike is 2000 k1200lt.

Thanks in advance

The black one should have a red band on the terminal and that is the positive feed to the reverser controller. There rest are 6 mm red to the starter relay, 6 mm red to the alternator, 4 mm red to a tie point and a 1.5 mm red to the ABS unit.

Normally there is one lead on the negative and it goes to a tie point behind the battery for all grounds (the frame is not a ground on BMWs).
