I've always understood that the engine block is the ground, and that the frame can work as a ground since it is connected through a conductive material to the engine block (usually the engine mounting bolts or just the snug connection of the frame around the engine mounts.) I don't necessarily run all grounds from a single point where the stator connects the engine block, I usually choose a location based on what works and looks good on the make/model I'm building. I prefer not to mount to the cylinder only because it becomes one more thing to remove/remember when replacing gaskets or checking the rings, and on most bikes it looks kind of messy attached there IMO
