Question on using Honda sub-harness to wire accessory lights

I'm installing accessory lights on my P700. I'm using a Honda sub-harness for power (keyed), but have a newbie question.

I am tying the wiring into a terminal block. If I understand correctly the keyed hot on the sub-harness is the white/black wire. But is the green wire essentially a negative? I am used to green being a ground in home wiring but have read of the "negative" wires being called grounds in some wiring directions.

I'm wondering if I just tie my black ground wires from my rocker switches into the terminal block alongside the green sub-harness wire.

It should work as you described. However, that is an awfully small wire to be running multiple grounding wires to. I think it would work better if you made another frame ground. Simply drill a hole in any metal frame/brace, buff the area to a bright clean metal look, and install a bolt with star washers to insure good contact.


In my short time on this forum, "Too Deep" is the man with the best working knowledge of Hondas. Hope he will comment on this.
