That is the most mickey mouse job of wiring I've seen on a flux capacitor. A 2 year old with elmers glue could do better.

It's called a ground loop.

Find a better ground for your amp. Seatbelt bolts are awesome. Or you can just go straight off the frame.

HEY!!!! Mine is yellow and has 4 "shell" like parts to it and smells like maple sugar....maybe it's only on Canadian models......along with the gas tank scarf. LOL

Awesome pic BTW.

As for the question......definatly a grounding issue. Just make sure that all your stereo system components are securely and properly grounded. That huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum will go after that.
