Cut Wire

I believe you are correct. It is +5v source for the Idle regulator position sensor. AKA Throttle Position Sensor.

Yup, that's the TPS
Have a look here, the pictures show the various parts all nicely labelled. Plus there's a link wiring diagram on the page too!

worth a look!

Clutch Drag?

Fairly new to this bike having purchased a 2010 a few months ago with 1800 miles and 50 hours on the clock. After 20 hours of riding, put the bike in for some minor warranty repairs and its second oil change. The bike was returned to me with what I felt was excessive clutch drag with a pretty strong bang from neutral into first. Long story short, after a complete teardown of the clutch pack and replacement of the thrust bearing (under warranty), the clutch still doesn't feel like it completely disengages and the dealer is now telling me that it is "normal" after additional fiddling and adjusting at both the lever and the cable end. I know there are a lot of variables in this issue, including what I think is normal. Just wondering if this is common or normal and, if not, any suggestions?
