TBW wire question

Took apart my bars to put new ones on. Can anyone tell me what the two wires (black and white) are for? It connects to the TBW but there was no extender sent with the kit nor do I remember disconnecting it from the ferring end.
Any help?

They're for heated grips. I don't ever plan on having heated grips so I just cut off the connector to save room in the bars.

It happened to me to and I did read everything and read a ton before, but I sat starring in the fairing at that damn plug and thought to myself. I don't remember disconnecting this. I Sat for an hour looking and looking and before I knew it and I had three beers and hit me..............I was like "shit who cares" and closed it up.

If your not running the all the wires inside the handlebars then you can leave the green connector on.

If your running Monkey Bars your best bet is to cut and solder..There is nothing smooth in those bars to get a plastic connector around...IMO

totally agree on the monkey bars, im an electrician and pulled many wires in my life and those bars suck pulling thru. they need to round off the edges inside badly.
