auxiliary power for OEM accessories I believe. Do a search for GPS install and I think you will find a thread with information about that.

Does it not connect to that pump right in front of it?

That opens that valve on deceleration. Adds air from the airbox into the exhaust tract. Helps burn excess fuel.

Thanks. That's what I was looking for. I must have pulled it out when I removed the tank. I've plugged it back in.

PAIR valve connection.

But isn't there a plug up in the same area for the factory lap timer?

Close? Yes, but it sits in the side frame hole further up front. Not on top.
