Mine is hardwired. I got rid of the connector when I changed out my bars from Yaffee to what I have now.

Are there any pics/info on how to remove the green connector (besides buying the CVO TBW, before all you smart asses jump in, lol)

I removed mine completely - gave me nothing but trouble when I internally wired 14" Outlawz. Just pulled the pins out of each side, cut them off, stripped 1/2 - 3/4" on each side, twisted together, solder - heat shrink each wire, then wrapped the bundle in electrical tape. No issues. Just keep track of which wire goes to which - on the "down" side you have 6 colors, "up" side you have just red, white and black. Getting them right is critical to functionality. I think Donk had a post that tells you which color is which, but just diagram it and you'll be ok.

Good luck,
G

I didn't even give it a second thought, hardwired mine and never had an issue after two different sets of bars.

Hold fast!

I left mine in but I have 1.5in bars and didnt have an issue wiring. If you have some type of 90* bend or similar I would for sure hard wire.

I say hard wire it. I just did this last weekend. Find the Donk sticky and you won't go wrong. That green connector seems a little weak to me and it was going to be too hard to get it inside the bars with everything else.

Mine is cut out also, just cut one wire at a time on both sides of the plug, splice the two wires together, solder the connection and heat shrink.
