TT Risers, Zip-Tie & 2 Hunks of Rubber Hose...WTF???

I just installed the TT 30mm risers on a 2012 R1200GS. I then noticed that leftover in the package was this zip-tie with two pieces of rubber hose to "fix the throttle wire as shown in Fig 4." Unfortunately, figure 4 is a black blob of a picture.

Does anyone know what in the hell I'm supposed to do with this zip-tie and pieces of rubber hose??? Is there an issue with the throttle wire? (don't seem to have one) Should it be re-routed??

Apparently, the US web site does not have the right document. Here are the correct instructions from Touratech Germany:

The piece of hose is to protect the wire from rubbing against the raised bar mount.

I didn't know TT did that. It makes sense. I wrapped electrical tape around my cable where it touches my rox risers.

The picture doesn't make it clear. There's two pieces of rubber hose about 1/4" long. Am I supposed to cut them and wrap around the throttle wire? Put the zip tie through them?

I get that you don't want the wire to rub on the riser. I still don't understand how to accomplish that with the rubber pieces and a zip-tie. It makes no sense. ???

I assume you wrap the rubber around the friction point and zip tie it for a friction hold.

Got it!

I was up in a tree today cutting some limbs and all of sudden I figured it out...

(1) Put larger OD rubber onto zip-tie
(2) Put smaller OD rubber onto zip-tie
(3) Wrap zip around handlebar & throttle wire (loosely)
(4) Position large OD rubber on the bottom of handlebar
(5) Position small OD rubber snuggly against larger one on the rear side (towards rider) of bar
(6) Throttle wire sits on top of small OD rubber.
(7) Tighten down the zip-tie


*OD = outside diameter

Just for the hell of it, I wrapped the throttle wire with electric tape where it brushes against the edge of the riser.
