Actually without it or something similar the, or any, tension would be applied directly to the soldered joints on the base of the ignition switch. So, yes, something is needed. This design/routing could have been a super easy factory fix.

I thought perhaps one purpose might be to avoid water / spray / dirt getting into the ignition switch?

One quickie-

Do one of these pesky wires run the headlight? When I pulled in to work I noticed the headlight would go out when I turned the bars to the right. Wondering if I missed a damaged wire. :157:

The Red wire with Blue stripe from Pin 4 of the Ignition Switch
supplies power to the Headlamp Relay.

so if you see someone without one, give them one of yours :-)

Looks like I am taking it apart again. Oh well, the hardest part is getting the wiring harness unplugged/plugged back in.

Since I suck at soldering I might take it to an electronics repair place to have a good job done. Probably have them lengthen every wire.

Thanks!

Since it is a very delicate part and could impair the start-up of your motorcycle. Yes, the best thing to solder the wires with tin, it is best to be soldered by an electronics professional.

All pulled out now.  Going to drop it at an automotive electrical shop after work Monday.  Going to have all the wires extended maybe 4" or so (10 cm or so for y'all across the pond).  Figure that will give me plenty of sack to never have the issue again.  Won't be a cheap repair/improvement, but it needs to be done.

One would think the factory simply making that pigtail a bit longer (like this repair) would be a lot easier/safer/better.

In fact, the problem is that the cables are short and when the handlebar is turned, they tense and break, and some important parts stop working.

Those that are somewhat longer are the two transponder cables.

The two transponder cables are protected by a sheath and attached to the same wire harness that goes to the ignition key.

I don't know anyone who has broken the transponder cables.
