hi all.
I noticed something strange today on my 08 S3 which is just at only about 5000km. The cable from the throttle that extends along the right side of the chassis has been ruptured, right at the point where it goes under the radiator cover on the right side.

After looking at it closely, I figured out that upon full lock of bars to the righ side, the cable gets rubbed against the sharp edge on the back side of the radiator cover.

The protective plastic case around the throttle wire is ruptured but the inner wire remains intact. To me it looks like a serious design flaw but I am curious if anyone of you had such problem or is it just my bike.
