I hope I can explain this. While repairing the 3 yellow wires, I found where the odd greens from the negative battery post went to.
Seems there is a short jumper harness between the main, to the rectifier. The PO had cut the ground(green) between the 2 plugs.
He added grounds to the plug at the rectifier, which run allover, 1 to the ground under the rectifier, 1 to the air cleaner bolt, 1 to the seat catch, there are at least 1 or 2 more. These are all tied together? I checked to main harness plug, and it has a good ground.
Question #1 I'd like to put it back to factory and do away with all the extra ground wires? Does this sound OK? I do have the male/female connectors for this.
Question#2 There is a small oval, electrical something attached to the plug which comes out of the rectifier wires seem to be no more than 20 gauge can't figure out what it is. 2 green wires come from the installed ground/2 reds come out of the reds from the rectifier
Hope this make sense.

From the looks of it, that could be a very rare bird. If you use the intercom that looks like the J&M harness that reduces a lot of electrical interference.

The extra grounds could be from an attempt to reduce interference, possibly the EC harness

Makes sense, found the plug for the passenger down under the seat. There is a push button mounted on the rail under the passenger seat also. I figured it was for the intercom? When I rewired the yellows on the 84, I don't remember the extra jumper plug. And the wiring diagrams don't show this or that I can find. I should have noted this has a CB also.
