Part Identification
on: June 20, 2018, 09:26:40 PM
Today I changed the air filter on my new-to-me Crossrunner (it's a 2012 model). On taking off the side panels I discovered the rubber item shown in the photo below. The wire has been cut on one end and inside the cover is a pair of terminals.

It looks like it has been cut deliberately and I can find no negative effects.

There is also a thin earth wire connected to the frame just behind the rubber thing which has been cut. Can anyone suggest what that should have been connected to?

As an aside getting to the filter was a total pain because of the fairing panels. It's like a damn puzzle getting them apart, way too much work involved for such a simple task. This bike is a pain to work on.

So I've realised that it's just a fuse holder, no idea why I didn't recognise it as such immediately. Fool. Anyway, any ideas what it was for?  Assuming it's not a standard part.

I think it was either for a battery tender or a heated jacket; I had one the same on my 08 800.
