What is the connector below and is it supposed to be left open? I don't recall disconnecting it during some cosmetic work, but it seems to "major" to be left dangling? Bike has been running fine and started up again, so it's likely a non-issue, i would just like to understand it better.

Thanks

Looks like the OBD2 cable. Doesn't get connected unless you or the shop want a computer to communicate with the bike's system.

Example of why you'd do that

Right, that makes sense. I'm used to working on carb'd bikes, so I lack experience with ecu's, flashes, mappings, OBD, etc

I've been purely EFI since 2005.

Never had to hook up an OBD connector once. That's about 60,000 miles on Triumphs and 15,000 in Indian. Modern bikes are just fantastic.
