V-star 950 connector under seat

Hi All,

I have a connector to the right side of the battery under the seat which is not connected to anything. it is a big connector with a lot of wires coming into it and it has a cover and is protected by a rubber sheath...so i think it is like that from the factory.

can anyone tell me what its for? is it possibly the yamaha connector for the factory alarm?

No actually its not a relay...my relay unit is just below it and is attached (as most relays are) with a clip....I will take a photo and try to upload it here....it reminds me of the diagnostic connectors which exist in some cars so that you can plug a pc into them....but I dont think it is ???

Garage
are there factory options for the bike that would get plugged in there maybe?

the wiring diagram for the 950 should show what it is, in the shop manual.

The shop manual for the VS 650 is available online (free), I dont know about the 950.

I wonder if it is a diagnostic connector. If the bike is Fuel Infected that would make sense.

I wonder if its a european thing? Do the american V-star 950s (2009) have them???

If it is a diagnostic lead...then I should be able to buy the connecting cable to hook it up to a laptop and do all sorts of weird and wonderful things to it

it could be the connector for the standard accessory Yamaha alarm....

I know that on the other 2 yamahas I own, Mamayama had left loose connectors for a plug and play alarm installation
