Bouncing nail = damaged sensor in twist grip?

A friend had a small accident with his vectrix. Now the "READY" icon does not turn on, an the bike cannot be activated with the "GO". Both brake sensors work perfectly. The nail from the odometer showed that the sensor was not calibrated after the accident, however after calibration it showed an astonishingly erratic behaviour. The ready still does not appear. Please have a look at the video. Maybe there's a problem with the magnetic piece inside the twist grip?

Re: Bouncing nail = damaged sensor in twist grip?

The throttle position sensor (TPS) has been damaged in the accident and will need to be replaced. I have seen this happen with the bike just falling on it's side onto the twist grip causing the magnet to come into contact with the TPS and cracking it. Not exactly a simple fix but anyone trained to repair the Vectrix should be able to complete the task in about an hour.

As it was a road accident I would strongly suggest the handle bar clamp be inspected for cracks or even replaced for piece of mind.
