ok so i brought my bike from this kid who didn't know anymore about the motorcycle than I do. Brought the bike and it didn't run and so i replace the battery and the headlights turn on but the engine doesn't turn over. turn out there is some wiring problem.

the kid told me that I need to connect a negative wire to the control panel.

i would appreciate a little help or some guide to someone who might be able to help.

Suzuki SV650 2nd gen

it appears your Regulator/Rectifier has an aftermarket harness that wires it directly to the battery, this is popular to do to keep these guys from over-heating and going bad on you. This will need to be attached to the battery to get/keep your bike started. I dont know your bike specifically but with it in the current non-running condition you may want to do a few tests to the engine to make sure its sound mechanically.
