One thing to check on the cruise, especially since you were pulling wire and moving stuff, is to follow the wire harness coming from the cruise control along the right side and there should be a connector in the triple tree area. Sometimes a little tug can pull that apart enough to make the cruise stop working.

If you are talking about the two wires that go to the front brake switch on the brake lever, I doubt it makes any difference which way they attach. This is a simple switch that closes and opens the connection between these wires. Almost certainly what has happened is that the switch on your idle cable has become turned on all the time. You can test this by removing one wire from this switch although this switch is hard to access as it is along the right side of the backbone of the bike and is mostly hidden by the tank.

There is an adjustment process for the throttle and idle cables in the service manual which is supposed to be done and this will likely allow the cruise to work again.

Glad the bars work well for you. I have had the exact same cruise control issue as you when I have messed with changing bars. The problem is the idle cable adjustment. Follow the service manual instructions for adjusting this and your cruise control problem should disappear.
