Time to get a better mouser
So a few weeks ago, I changed the oil in the bike. One of my vent doors in the fairing wasn't working right, so I pulled the fairing to check it out. Much to my surprise, two mice came scurrying out, scared the shit out of me. After I removed the nest they built under the fairing, I found that they were chewing on wires all winter. WTF!!!
The price for the wire harness wasn't as bad as I thought (don't tell MoCo that), about $140. The issue is, it's on back order until end of June. My dealer didn't tell me that until 2 weeks had gone by without getting a call. I checked online, Ebay, all the usual places. There are a couple of harnesses in Europe for a lot more money. So here I sit, waiting. I'll be luck to get mile 1 in by 4th of July.
Panic, chaos, disorder, my work is done here.
