Mxz mpem teather

I recently got my first sled (2000 MXZ 700) and the previous owner told me that the MPEM teather on these sleds can be "sensitive" if used alot. My question is, do i need to worry about taking the teather on/off a lot whenever i got off the sled or when i park it for the night. I dont wanna be buying a new one since i see they go for $100+.

I have heard that as well! I would remove it and clean it real good and then give it a shot of WD40! Atleast a coupla times a year!

Does anyone know of a way to bypass these?

I'd leave it on unless you need to remove it. They are programmed to the sled (chipped) and can't be bypassed.

I was not looking to bypass it, more less just for the sense of security when I park it and whether or not if I should clip it to my jacket while riding in case I go for a spill lol

The little "chip" inside the cap of my tether is loose - I don't ever take mine off anymore. Every once in a while I have to wiggle it to get a good connection again or it goes into limp mode.
