Need help identifying a connector?

Wondering if anyone can tell me what this unused connector on my 09" Bonneville is intended for??

Sits right under the tail end of the fuel tank.

Thanks in advance

Almost looks like the electrical connect for an evap canister.

It's the connector for the EVAP solenoid.

Thanks for the replies.

Im assuming then that all bikes have the connector, but not all have the canister/solenoid ?

As in I did not remove it and I VERY highly doubt the previous owner did (based on the 700 miles it had been ridden and left outside to rot for 3 years).

From a manufacturing standpoint it's easier to make one wiring harness that can be used on more than one model or configuration.
My '07 had a canister and all of the associated plumbing and electronics (since removed). It is a "T" machine that was sold new in Kentucky. I bought it from the original owner.
My thinking (I have no way of knowing for certain) is that all "T" machines have the EVAP systems. There is also a chance that a specific percentage of "T" machines are equipped with EVAP systems and the rest are not. There is also a chance that I have no clue as to why some have it and some don't.

The EVAP emissions system was only fitted to California models, but all bikes have that purge valve solenoid connector fitted.

Not quite...I have a Texas bike that has the entire EVAP system. To be honest, I think all US models come with it, instead of having a 49 state version and a Kalifornia version.

Question is, are their two different tunes? A tune w/ EVAP installed and one without? Seems hard to believe they'd create two different tunes for that system. But that's just me....things aren't always as simple as I'd like.

I seem to remember that they might have fitted it to all the later bikes rather than split bike deliveries between different States/countries according to local emission laws.

My 2015 Thruxton purchased new in Minnesota had one which was connected and apparently operational (until removed recently) and I to was wondering what if any difference removing it would make in the operation of the bike and if I needed to do a re-adaption?
