On my Trophy SE the same problem has occurred. One of the wires is broken where it goes out from ignition switch.
I wonder; will it help to change the wires with wires being 5 to 10 cm longer? The mission is to get a softer bend.

From what I can see on my bike, it's more about the way those wires exit the switch body and the rubbing of the brake hose more than the wires being pulled tight all the time. By all means, try longer wires but I doubt that would help/solve the problem??
