I came across the same problem the OP ran into: the cables just wouldn't go in easily. It took a lot of fidgeting but I eventually got it.
Over the years, I've done just about every mod possible, if not a version of said mod. I think I've owned 8 or more bikes in the last 11 years, and looking back at how I invested so much money and time into small mods just to sell the bike soon after doesn't really make it worth it to me. I just like to ride now, after a few standard mods, of course: exhaust, windscreen, etc.
Plus, I'm getting older and have less interested in experimenting with so many mods. I pretty much just take the bike apart when something has to be maintained or fixed, and I rarely upgrade parts, like tires and chains, until the original is worn out.
