I'm Impressed!

One of my moto lights developed a short in the wiring between the light and plug. I removed the light spent some time locating the short. Removed the wiring cover and found a broken wire and soldered it back together. It is working great again.

I am very impressed with the workmanship and materials used. They are well put together. So you ask how did the wire break? My mistake I used a wiretie to attach the wire to my brakeline and the constant movement broke the wire. I discovered I did not have enough slack in the wire, putting it into a bind, causing it to break. Oh and this happened after 45K miles.

Now it is ready for another 100K miles.
