That particular machine needs a set of proper Monster bent bars, the aftermarket bars are causing the switch gear and choke to rub. It wasn't easy to install the choke. It was a make do as it was like the 3rd set of bars on a bike in a few weeks. The switch gear must be replaced as the horn button is broken. Might be possible to take the entire gear apart and try to get the button released and back in place but for $40-50 you are better off with new switch gear on that side. The button got smashed when it pushed in the tank.
Your ex had a new set of switches, left and right, he ordered on eBay for that bike but has put them in the bin. It's my understanding that your ex did quite a bit of work keeping that bike running until the last accident had you park it for almost a year showing no further interest in the bike. At least that's what he had told me. I'm glad you have decided to ride it rather than sell as you had mentioned.
