How did that happen?
Guessing it was from taking off and putting back on the side panel. Mine started to cut into my wires a couple of months ago, put some electrical tape over it though before it caused any type of serious damage to it and has effectively protected them since then... What he also may have to do is cut that zip tie that is holding that wiring harness there, in order to give him some slack with the harness, so he can move it around when putting on the side panel, I also did this and now can move my harness over when I go in and mess with the shock settings and now I can slip it on within a couple of seconds because of this. GL man, they may have to replace the harness there...

Rss got it right. The cobras make it hard to get it on and I scraped it...
Added to post #4 of my FAQ.

Q: I have some new aftermarket pipes and they seem to block my side mounted cover slightly, could this be a problem?

A: Yes, they could potentially be a problem to you in the long run, especially with the wiring harness right behind the cover. The cover guiding pin or hook on the cover will have a tendency to rub against the wiring, effectively stripping off the outer coating to this wiring harness, this is caused by having to "slide" in the cover as opposed to just putting the cover on with the OEM pipes. This will have a tendency to damage the cable and could cause starting issues in the future.

A solution to this problem would be to cut the zip tie that is holding the harness down- the zip tie that is by the shock adjust, holding the wiring harness down firmly- so that this allows the cable to move more freely when taking on or pulling off your right side battery cover. Another preventative measure besides cutting that zip tie is to cover up that wiring harness with some electrical tape or a rubber protective material of some kind, to lessen the blow of the rubbing from the cover to the harness.

Rss. Also recommend the grinding down if the square part of the nub. That's what tore mine.
What do you mean... the part that connect to the side cover? Makes sense... that could be the part that is cutting into the wires..?

if you look on the inside of the removable cover the male end that goes into the frame has a sqaure block that it protrudes from... grind down the sharp edges it would still be functional just not destructive. i cant figure out why the bike wont start. i get nothing when i turn the key. i checked the fuses, and there is only one fucked up wire and its not totaly broken just open in one part. its a red wire. any thoughts?

i have narrowed it down to the 30 amp fuse that is inline witht he starting solnoid. the only problem is i cant find it. anyone with a manual that can give me instructions on where it is and how to get there would be a life saver and could be the best man in my wedding at the end of the month :)

ok i solved the problem. RSS throw this on the FAQ somewhere. there are fuses in two locations. obviously in the fuse panel behind the right side removable cover. <--- the one that daggered me. there is also a 30 amp fuse behind the battery case cover. if you look at your battery next to it is a wiring harness with a 30 amp fuse on the outside. this is your spare. if you grab the two red clips and seperate the harness the fuse is inside there. not a fun day for me but informative and i have some quasi sense of satifaction from fixing it even though i f-ed it up!

Sorry to hear about the issue you had captain and glad to hear you got it fixed, unfortunately it's one of those things that someone has to have issues with before everyone else knows about the problem, but at least now people can go ahead and make the necessary changes so that it doesn't happen to others and if so know how to fix it. Thanks for bringing the issue up in the forum and sharing what you learned with everyone else.

Holy Mother of Pearl---the man is gettin' hitched. Hmm, what would the new wifey say to a bunch of nicely dressed boyz and girlz on some very nice, loud motor-cickles riding up to pay our respects??
