07 Thruxton question

I don't know the bike very well yet - had it for only a month or so and have been mostly out of town.

Anyone know what this opening is? A little concerned that it may need to be covered!

It's a manufacturing hole, for another option or whatever. No need to worry about it. Just leave it alone.

Ride safe,

Quentin

I had a 2005 Thrux and maybe I don't remember right but I thought there was a plastic push in part that supported the stator wire. I don't have any pics of a closeup of that area on my bike.

Also, you probably already know this but you can turn the top of that temperature gauge to face you when riding.

This. I have a plastic cable clip and some wires in there on my '05, but those wires were later routed a different way.

I put an ear plug in mine so water wouldn't collect.
