Terminal Ground Connection Location

I would like to know where Suzuki connects the battery ground terminal on the Veek produced after May 27 2015?
After the recall it was connected on my bike to the engine hidden behind the engine sprocket cover.
Is this the same location on new bikes straight from the factory?

same spot?

OK, for the factory answer I'll wait until a 2015 bike owner joins this forum.

How about 2014 owners. Where is now your ground terminal connected after the recall work? Same spot as above? You can see it without removing anything.

We have a 2015 V2 and the earth connection started life on a pissy engine case bolt and was relocated and cable upgraded? to behind the clutch cover when the recall was done.
It would be safe to assume this location is now in current production models.

My 2014 V2 had the earth connection relocated to behind the front sprocket cover as a part of the recall work.
