Default Ground issue

I have a TAO TAO 150 , Runs but skips when running, Noticed when running that a spark is created between bottom motor mount and bracket. So I am guessing I have a bad ground somewhere and its throwing it to the engine but not sure where to start looking .

I don't know your machine but I don't understand that you can see a spark there. I would expect it to be tight against mount and bracket.
All motors need to be grounded.
Tighten that up (if applicable), also you can look for a disconnected/broken ground wire.
I add a extra wire from frame to motor.
Hope that helps.
