I can't answer your question other than saying you forgot something, but why did you cut the wire if youre using bar end mirrors? I would have just used a wire nut or something. GL

Sounds like a blown fuse. On the Gixxers, I believe one fuse controls the headlight and cluster gauge. Try that first and see what you find.

Simply unplug it from the harness?

Did you have the battery disconnected? If not, you probably contacted both positive and negative with the cutter when you cut the wire, causing a fuse to blow.

Yeah but that should only happen if the key was in the ON position or the bike was running. Crossing the two shouldn't be a problem if the bike is off.

i checked the fuses and i blew one ...im pretty sure its for the cluster,but if i replace the fuse what should i do about the wires that just sitting around? i know i can tie them up in all but do i need to do anything with grounding them or nothing? I went out and bought fuses just incase i mess something up i have others to replace.

You should already have spares in the fuse box. Usually one 10A and one 15A but it never hurts to have more on hand. There's a quick-connect plug for the mirrors so just trace the line you cut and find it. Unplug it, toss it, and you're done.

Just use electrical tape and tape them off.
Don't need to ground out or anything.

Just make sure they dont touch.

Sounds like you found your answers.
Totally unrelated, but somewhat relevant... you should check your cockpit before heading out. Just a quick scan for the basics; fuel, battery, oil, temp, etc.

Do NOT do this. This is fine for a temporary repair or to get you home but this is not a permanent repair cuz the tape WILL fall off, especially when capping off a set of wires since there's much less surface area to stick to and it doesn't stick well to itself. Plus, in the time it would take you to fumble around in there and wrap the wires, you could have unplugged the damn thing and be inside drinking a brew.

Sorry, but I did LMAO when he called it a "cockpit."

Good point. I bet it happened when the wires were just dangling and he turned the key.

You will probably only have to trace it a few inches. Look for a gray or black square plug, you can't miss it.
