Heated Grip Re-wrap...anyone done this?

Looking for a little guidance here. I buggered my heated grips by accidentally severing one the wires. I unwrapped everything (throttle side) and reattached the resistance wires using some crimped metal tubing...but heat.

The left side still works, but I can't get any heat on the throttle side. I've checked the connections at the main junction (the connector that branches the left and right side from the harness) and even switched the left with the right to see if it was just a bad connection. No go. Clues anyone? (Its a 1995 R1100RS).

I'm wondering if anyone has ever fully unwrapped the wires to re-tape everything with success. I can't figure out why this would not work...but maybe I'm missing something? Not in the mood to drop $103 on a new heated grip!
