Hi.
when fitting the original tail tidy, a cable was squashed between the tail tidy and the bike when tightening the bolt by accident. The was a pop and now the rear light and indicators don’t work. Is there a way to fix this and how?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks
Chris

It sounds like the cable shorted and at least one fuse blew. You will have to open up the cable insulation, separate the wires where they were crushed, and tape each one separately with electrical tape. Then wrap the cable where you opened it with electrical tape. Now you will need to replace the blown fuse(s).

I think CarlS has it covered. That's what I would suggest.
