So after installing new bars on my 650, the engine would quit if you turned the bars to the right, spent a good 20 minutes trying to figure it out thinking electrical short somewhere, disconnected GPS/Headlight Kill switch, turns out I did not put the clutch handle where it needed to be on the bar, had it about an inch or two too far out, and when turning the bars to the right it was pulling on my decomp cable. Nice.
