2004 sportsman 400 frame/engine cable

Hello all, i am fairly new to the atv world. I recently purchased a 2004 sportman 400 and it needed some work. I have it mostly finished but i have no idea where the frame/engine ground cable connects. If anyone has any idea where this cable goes on this four wheeler I would greatly appreciate it and put you in my prayers. A pic. would be excellent if anyone has one. I know it is located above the water pump but unsure exactly where it is suppose to go, Thanks all.

If its a ground just put it under any bolt that's convenient. I think they often are under one of the starter mounting bolts.

Solenoid wiring is easy - cable to starter motor goes on one terminal and the battery cable and accessory wires go on the other terminal - the terminated wires attached to the solenoid plug into the wiring harness
