please identify this wire

Well I took the bike apart 3 months ago, then went to work in scenic Angola, came back and got the bike all back together, but I cannot figure out where this last wire goes, it comes off the fuse box, and it says 'DC' on the side of the plug, anyone have any idea where it plugs into?
Cheers, Jack

Looks to me like it's a quick connector for a battery tender...

+1. It looks like an add-on.

Looks factory wired into the fuse box, but maybe not, it is wrapped with electrical tape, no big deal, I will try to start the bike with out it Maybe I can use it to plug my heated seat into. Thanks all.

I've seen connectors like that for Gerbings heated clothing. Hook up the portable Temp controller there. or a battery charger. test it with a meter 1 side battery hot and the bare side ground.
Hope this helps

Older Gerbing clothing...the newer connectors are co-axial. The exposed terminal should be ground, the covered either constant 12V or switched 12v.

Bike fired right up after 3 1/2 months without connecting that wire, I think you guys are right, the previous owner must have added it, he did a nice job, it's wired into the fuse box and comes out the bottom. Thanks again, Jack

What kind of battery are you using and did you have it on a battery tender while you were gone?

battery

Bruce, the battery is the Odyssey PC 680 that came with the bike when I bought it in March of 2006. I disconnected it after I got it home from dropping it on its side halfway up a ramp in the snow on May 4th of this year, set it on the cold floor of my garage while I went over to Angola for 2 months, no tender, and a couple of days ago, on Aug 19th, 3 1/2 months later, stuck it back in the bike, and it fired right up with no hesitation whatsoever, amazing.
