The ground I pictured could possibly be the ground that you showed me in the diagram. The only strange thing is that the ground I pictured is at the front of the quad and not the rear. Not anything that would necessarily affect its purpose, but it's just fishy

The wiring diagram does not show where that green wire bolts down, its just a representative schematic of the circuits. So the location near the front of the bike sounds legit and frankly, frame ground location does not matter.

I'd troubleshoot those reverse inhibitor relay connections as explained in the manual next.

Have you checked all of the switches and their circuitry (neutral, reverse, ignition, kill switch, start switch, light switches, etc.) on the bike yet? If not, those should be included in your checks right now. You've got the wiring diagram (make sure that your wiring is all connected up proper, wire colors & components match the diagram), the service manuals, your dad is an EE... and those tests are fairly simple anyway. Let us know what you learn.

Soooo the control stack on the bike is not the original and matching the wiring is a bit more complex than matching colors. I have had it wired up and working properly but recently I dove a little deeper into it and realized it was wired incorrect. Tomorrow I will look again but would rather just have an original

Also a side note for you to know. The cam shaft rod of which the pickup rotates on is bent so I have a new used cam on the way with high hopes it is straight

You'll need to swap out that control stack (what is that?) if it was not an OEM Honda part specifically designed for that bike. Same goes for any other parts that are not stock for that model, or not genuine Honda.

Parts cannot be mixed and matched from model to model. Yours has an AC-CDI ignition system that is unique. Replace using proper matched parts then start over... before ya fry something expensive if ya haven't already!

Sorry, when I say control stack this is what I refer to, Just the switches. This is clearly not the original. Everything else I've bought for this junk project has been original used. On a different note regarding the ground circuit carying 12v, when I unplug the cdi itno longer carries voltage... And Incade you ask, yes the cdi was pulled off a "running trx200" (claimed the ebay ad) not sure if that's supposed to happen but that's the only condition that changed whether or not the circuit has 12v

Thats because that switches assembly belongs on a model that had a DC-CDI ignition system. Unplug that right away. Hopefully you haven't smoked the CDI you bought yet, by sending battery voltage to it through the kill switch. Odds are its toast though, cause you fed battery current directly into the CDI primary. Your ignition coil probably wasn't hurt though... Anything else on the bike that does not belong?

Other than mix matched tires and rims no ... So what you're saying is that cdi that I got in the mail yesterday I've probably already toasted?

You won't learn the answer to that question until you unplug that switches assembly. Take it off the bike and throw it in the trash if ya gotta...

Then connect that ground wire to the frame. Make sure that everything else is hooked up properly. Put the transmission in neutral, take a good NGK spark plug and lay it on the head and test for spark.

You've also fed battery current through the ignition switch where it doesn't belong. Retest that ignition switch according to the manual in case that got fried open (or shorted). If you notice anything weird going on when you connect that green ground wire to the frame, unhook it immediately and don't go any further until you find out what all got fried or shorted by that battery voltage.
