I'm not sure what you mean by "grounding". This is DC current, not AC, and you just need to make sure the +ve and -ve are connected properly and insulated from each other.

Which fuse did you blow and how many amps is it rated for? Perhaps it's a fuse in the battery to protect the cells? The specs for that inexpensive V-power battery say max 20amps continuous discharge and there may be a fuse in there to protect the pack. With a 1000 watt motor/controller, it would not be unusual for it to try and draw more than 20 amps when you are leaning on the throttle.
