What are these cables?? (2005 WR450F)

4 posts in this topic

Ok, after a log-crossing gone bad, I ended up buried into a couple of spruce trees on the side of the trail. After pulling myself and bike out of the branches (and then pulling the branches out of bike), I noticed that I busted two "cables" (and yes I even had brushguards on!!).

One of them runs off the clutch lever and looks like a sensor or something.

The other runs off the front brake fluid resevoir and has 2 small metal cables inside of it.

Can you please tell me what these are?

Is it ok to ride while I wait to get into the shop?

oh ya... the bikes a 2005 WR450F

Thanks in advance!!

The one on the clutch is the sensor that allows the bike to be started in gear with the clutch pulled in. If its disconnected it is likely your bike will only start in neutral.

There shouldn't be any cable on the front brake:excuseme:

This one is from the pressure switch that makes your brake light brighter when you pull your lever in. :ride:
