Hi all, I have just finished removing the O2 sensors on my 2015 America. It was much easier than I expected as I did not have to remove the fuel tank. The bike starts easily without the use of the “choke” and there are no engine warning lights so all seems to be well. I have previously removed the Air Injection System. I haven’t been for a ride yet as we are in the middle of a monsoonal wet season. The weather bureau is forecasting some dry weather around Thursday so fingers crossed.
My question is while removing the O2 sensors I came across this plug with the pictured wires inserted, I have no electrical knowledge so have no idea what this is, or what the purpose of the modification is. The plug is located underneath the tank on the right hand side. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 15CCFBE8-483A-4908-875E-07B5C145B7E9.jpeg37E97D12-1369-4603-AAA8-4104BE84FB8F.png

I think I have this solved thanks Triumph david, apparently it is delivered like this from the factory. The half of the plug with the wires is removed if you fit the Triumph alarm. 9226CC6F-6144-40D8-95C4-E13EC18B0389.png

Interesting that the shorting plug has to be returned to Datatool.

I wonder how many people actually send them back? I would hang on to it in case I removed the alarm in the future. Luckily we don’t have a big problem with bike thefts in Townsville providing you take normal precautions like removing your key. Cars are a totally different, we have a massive problem with kids stealing cars and going for joy rides. Only just before Xmas four kids died in a crash during one such joy ride.

Exactly - and what on earth is Datatool going to do with them? Strange.
