tell me it's no big deal
I was just in the process of TRYING to remove ( gave up after it was almost all apart) the left hand button cluster to try and shim the cruise control toggle and as I removed the hand grip from the bar by sliding it all the way off I realised I had torn away the wire that is inside the handle bar and seems to be attached to the bottom of the hard case that the grip slides over so that it can then be slid over the handle bar tube.
Re-assembled everything and have just left the wire unattached inside the handle bar.
1) what is this wire?
2) any problems with leaving it that way?
I think that after pushing and prying all of these plastic parts and getting the distinct feeling at times that I am going to crack/break/mangle some of these bits , it may be time to leave the heavy lifting to more experienced hands.
Even though there is a sense of getting to know the bike I'm not sure she will continue to want to get to know me.
ANy help, as always, is much appreciated.
