Does anyone know if there is a minimum size the ground wire should be on my cb750? When I bought it the wire was quite small, maybe 16 gauge. I have a large (1/2 inch thick) ground but it is too short.

How small can the ground be? If it is too small will the electric simply not work?

Thanks

A half inch wire for a ground is way too big unless you are planning on welding. I can't remember the actual gauge of wire used as a ground but if you really wanted to know what you would need find out what your peak amp draw is/ peak alternator output and find out what side of wire will handle it. most I have seen are about 1/4 thick at most.
