    Can anyone identify this connector?

     :158: Hello all,
    I have started to strip the panels off my 950 to add auxiliary lights, a ZUMO satnav, and  ScottOiler. After I pulled the saddle, i found what looks like an unused connector on the left side of the bike.



    I place a red flag behind the connector to make it easier to see.


    Does anyone know what this connector is used for? BTW, this is a US purchased bike.

    Thank you,
    Renzo

    I think it is to connect Ducati trickle charger. But I may be wrong 😀

    The GPS lead is at the front of the bike. Somewhere on this forum is a very clear video showing exactly where to find it. I used it to install TomTom GPS a few months ago. Made it dead easy. What you have under the seat? No idea, sorry.

    Almost certain that is for the ducati OEM battery trickle charger as mentioned earlier.

    I spliced my Garmin to the wire that runs the USB back there.  Then the Garmin switches off with the key and doesn't drain the battery.  Connecting it to the wire will allow it to drain the battery when you're not riding.

    If you mean the white connector, it is for the OEM alarm.

    No the connector is not a the OEM trickle charger as the Ducati charger plugs into the diagnostic port which is fixed to the right hand side of the ECU

    Did you not know that if you look under the clutch side black front trim that has the Ducati logo on it there is a connector specificity for gps connection

    Woah!  BabyD I did not even know this! 

    Could you take a pic and then use Markup to help us identify that?  I'm looking under the clutch and light switch housing, but I don't think this is what you are referring to.  Do you mean the front air intake snout under the headlight on the clutch side?
