    Shit. I suppose it is time to open that right handcontrol tomorrow once I get back from xray. Seems I managed to get an pneumonia. That shit goes well together with BD controls .... I do not exactly love to dig into there .... I must admit Old Skool HD controls look pretty good just now. Or maybe I just turn left from now on.

    Same thing happened to me long time ago. Since you are going to open it, once there clean and lube it properly. Dialectric grease too.

    run some masking tape around the control once you have the one half off to hold it to the bar. Life saver.

    Yep, job done. The stupid connector had worked itself loose somehow.... I really would prefer to have a short wires from the board and then the connector rather than having the connector on board.
