So, I thought it to be a nice day to ready the GW250. Pulled off the Suzuki cover and ... Seemed like a mountain of Sunflower seeds had been blown in like insulation or bedding. Then I noticed that gizzmo that adjusts your rear suspension cushioning. It had what looked like white edges in spots, and dullness from the nice factory finish, where SOMETHING HAD CHEWED on it.
That was bad enough. Then I saw this piece of wire; just lying there uselessly. Then I vacumed out the seeds and found another red/black wire just laying there. THEN I found a large partial rectangle of soft rubber. It too had been chewed.
Funny thing is, it seems as though this was selective grazing by WHAT EVER it was. It seemed not to have touched my factory wires. So I hope I'm alright. They(?) seemed to have targeted my battery charger extension. I'll investigate replacement, later.
In the mean time, can anyone identify what this black, soft, rectangular thingy is and where should it be located?
One photo shows the suspension adjuster, with chew marks / finish
One photo shows the under saddle battery storage after the vaccuming.
Any ideas why this (likely red squirrel) found a warm tent under the bike cover and was so selective in his wiring "taste"?
