Why? There plenty of ways to shed some weight before you start hacking up the harness.

Unless you're a serious racer its really not necessary..

Even so...Just fold back, black tape and zip tie them out of the way. Just no reason to cut the good harness away.

Yep, good advice there.
There's a lot more harm that can come from shorted wires or cutting the wrong thing vs any gain from cutting them.

Ppl say they wont street all day long but when and if u sell it u never know what the next person might want to do. Point being I just spent about 3-4 hours rewiring Ivans 2001 Ducati M600 cuz someone hacked up the wiring harness MAJOR PITA!!! Not worth it....like said above tape and zip ties...
