Extra Plug connector Help

Hi folks,
I picked this Nice 2002 TT600 Last month I love the bike.
I decide to get my hands dirty and tried to change the spark plugs, I notice someone allready had worked on the bike , I found this cable from main wiring harnness floating on top of the engine , does anybody has any Idea were does it goes?
I plugged on to the Air box sensor and it makes a perfect fit , but I allready have a wire assigned to the box
I also notice one of the spark plugs was wet, meaning Oil on the tread ,not on the tip of the plug but arround the screw tread.
any advice will be greatly appreciated
thank you.

According to some searching, the wire sitting loose with the grey connector is a california emissions thing that is not used on bikes from other markets. Honestly, I searched for this when I got my bike back in Sept, and failed to find a post by someone that had a bike that utilized that wire.


Searching also suggests that the oil around the plugs is from a leaking valve cover gasket.


I use google directly to search this site and other forums I'm on, it works pretty good. Just put your search phrase in google with "site:triumphrat.net". For example:

oil spark plug tt600 site:triumphrat.net

Your bike looks like it is in good shape. I have the same problem right now too a little oil on the plugs, threads.

mistery!!!

Thank you for you all replys
heres what I found:

I believe the connector goes to the California emisions junk. If you don't have a California motor, it should be orphaned. I have the same thing on my TT and that is what is according to the wiring data.

THE CONNECTOR IS FOR THE MANUFACTURER TO PLUG INTO TO RE MAP IT, OR TO FIND FAULT CODES, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM TRYING TO FIND WHERE IT CAME FROM. AFTER 2 DAYS OF WONDERING, I FOUND OUT FROM A DISC I BOUGHT OFF EBAY. I ALSO GOT IT CONFIRMED WITH A FRIEND WHO WORKS AT A TRIUMPH DEALERS.
I'll said the second option looks more reasonable, but still a mistery!!!

It is the first solution. Has been mentioned many times on here before. The remap/diag port will be found under the seat for easier access and is a lot bigger and mine has a black rubber protecting it. Don't worry about it. I belive all the fours at least have it

Not the plug for diagnostics looks like a air emissions plug

Yes, that plug is for SAI (Secondary Air Injection), a California Emissions thing. If your bike isn't in CA, that plug doesn't do anything. It is not the ECU/Diagnostic cable. The Diagnostic cable is under the seat, on the brake side, like an 8 or 10 pin connector.
