Front Brake Switch Connector Defect?

This does not look right: has a cover plate fallen off this connector, leaving exposed wiring?

Take a look at your own bikes, from the riding position it's easily visible under the RH bar just inboard of the master cylinder clamp.

Yup mine came that way. An oversight by the fit and finish people at Kawi.

What does it need? Just a little cover to snap in place?

Yep, that's all. It's on the back end of the connector, the non-business end, away from the actual terminals.

I saw this on my first ride yesterday and spend a good 5 mins searching for where the cover might have fallen off!!

I really do wonder why they did not finish it. Also, will there be any issues if it remains like this and you are riding in the wet?

Maybe this exposed connector can be covered with small pieces of Gorilla tape.
