Need a little info on the make model and year of bike. And where on the bike are we looking at. Looks like a K12R?

The GPS plug is on that side but looks a little more square.

Can you take a clearer picture of the plug?

'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda

Is there a single pin on the inside of that? Hard to tell by the pic? Where do the wires lead? Did the previous owner say anything about things he/she had put on, but didn't sell?

yes there is a single pin in it.... well it's on the right side of the bike and it comes out just under the K1200R marking.
I got the Bike from a Car dealer that had the bike as a part exchange....I had alook on the net and someone mentioned that it could have something to do with an intercom system? not sure...

The bike should have premium gas. I usually only use Chevron or Shell. It may help to have your location on your profile.
