I picked up a 955i in good condition later last year and am working on genral service
I found a disconnected plug in the wiring harness and am hoping someone can advise what it goes to? (the bike starts and runs fine)
I am also looking for info about the little reservoir under the rear and the rear turn signal/licence plate holder

Anyone who can shed light on the following would be appreciated

1 - I found this harness connector sticking into the battery area but I dont know what it goes to. Am I missing something

2 - here is a pic of the small reservoir I found under the rear seat cover/hump. Anyone know what this is for (coolant overflow/expansion maybe?)

3 - my rear tail unit (that the indicators and license plate attach to) got a bit melted but an aftermarket exhaust. Can anyone provide a part number:? I can't find it iin the manual

That is to connect with a computer for service/diagnostics

I don't know either coolant expansion is certainly a possibility
3 - my rear tail unit (that the indicators and license plate attach to) got a bit melted but an aftermarket exhaust. Can anyone provide a part number:? I can't find it iin the manual
maybe T2301300

1. The OBDII connector (when you get deeper into it, you will also find another unused connector under the tank, unless it happens to be a California model)
2. Yes, The Coolant Expansion Reservoir
3. I believe it is T2301349 - you have to be careful with part numbers in the 97-01 series - you show the number plate area, it is in fact a complete assembly including the fender and battery box; the one you want is is for the 00-01 which has a different ECU to the earlier (the later ECU bolts to the front of the battery box; the earlier one is located next to the coolant reservoir). The Speed Triple and Daytona part for same respective years should be same.
You can occasionally find these 'used' however most have had the number plate section chopped off and replaced with a less obtrusive plate mount.

Thanks

Is there some kind of cover or plug that should go over the end or a place to tuck it away? It seems a bit of bad design to leave part of ta wiring harness open like that

On my Tiger there is a plastic dummy male connector that the plug goes on to hold it in place. Looks like a piece of flat plastic with no purpose.

There should be a male tab on the fender just in front of the reservoir that it clips onto - you'd be forgiven for not seeing it or understanding what it's for or how it actually applies. It's nothing more than a raised plastic strip that fits into the space between the terminals of the connector; so you just clip it on there.

My rear fender/mudguard is chopped off below the plate as D'Ecosse mentioned in his post.
