    G 310GS kickstand wires hanging out

    Hello all,
    Any of you with a G 310GS know what I'm talking about. Those nasty few wires that are exposed on the " ignition safety switch " which lay behind the kickstand. I have taken the liberty of replacing the cheap plastic cover that's suppose to protect it with a much beefier metal cover, but there are still a few wires exposed that concern me. Aside from using a piece of black electrical tape which would in my opinion look a bit cheesy,.... are there any other things that folks have used that would look better and offer protection from weather and or rocks (if riding off road) ?

    I never noticed an issue on either of our 310GSs but if I did I would go to an auto parts store and get some spiral wrap for wiring.

    Iíll bet Tourtech and Wunderlich have aluminum guards that will protect those wires for $100+. Those will probably work to protect the wire about as well as $5 worth of plastic wire loom.

    I did install an aluminum guard, but there are still wires that are exposed and can be seen from the back of the guard which concern me. Maybe some shrink wrap tubing or spiral wrap as Paul suggested .
