There shouldn't be any reason for that. It should be a white/black wire that provides the ground (through the handlebar) to terminal 85 of the starter relay. This wire should be position number 3 of the Molex 15 terminal connector. There is very little load on this wire...not sure why anyone would want to run it external? Perhaps the starter failed to actuate at some point and this was part of their diagnostics???
