Default Got my Heli bars, but need help with cruise control issue

Drove to Daytona today and got my Heli bars installed. LOVE THEM. However.... getting close to home I went to put on my Cruise control. Nada, zip, nothing. No lights. Got home took switch apart on handlebar, don't see anything torn loose, but hard to see in the bugger. Any more ideas would be gratefully as I don't want to ride 300 more miles tomorrow to try and get it fixed!

pull faring and start tracing wire for a pinch or un hooked.
Go to fuses and check them

Damn, I was hoping not to which is why I had them install the bars and pull my fairing. Think I can reach the wires just pulling the head light?


Where is the fuse?

You don't have to pull the whole fairing to check around in there.
If you have never had the front outer fairing off, it's no big deal.
Once you pop out the headlight, you only have 4 screws on each (one under each speaker grill). Pull out from below the headlight opening and then up and out at the top (I find removing the windshield helps to release the upper clips), and it's off. Hopefully it's something obvious and you'll save a trip back.
Shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to get it off.

Mtvic,
You need to run the cruis control diagnostics out of the last chapter of service manual. Dollars to doughnuts your throttle close switch needs to be adjusted if you connected all wires up right. I had similar issues after doing 2" pullbacks a few weeks ago.
