The joys of buying a used bike. Prior owner had the bike pretty much fully sorted. Spent a lot of money at the dealer and another repair shop when he bought it non running from original owner. Someone I think the shop labeled everything which is nice but I found this today and I’m wondering what it’s supposed to do?
Thanks for any tips.

What ever it is for it seems to have a pretty decent air gap now. Your best bet is to just physically trace it, it looks aftermarket.

Thanks. Bike runs fine without it. Was just curious if any of the guys who’ve rebuilt their bike several times on here might have known from experience. I didn’t have time to trace it today but I still at some point.

It's clearly labeled. It's the "?" wire. As long as your ? is working, everything is fine. If you don't have the ? installed, you don't need to worry about it. The ? is just a battery drain anyway, I ditched mine the first week I had it.
