What is this connector for?

I just bought a 2002 VL800 6,400 miles. When I took the tank off, I saw this connector that wasn't connected to anything. Does anyone know what it is for? The only connector I took off, was the one that connects to the back of the tank.

It's for the flux capacitor.

Flux Capacitor. Lol.

I should introduce myself first. Where are my manners?

I live in Georgia, in the metro Atlanta area. This is my 3rd Suzuki. My first, was a TM 75 dirt bike that I got for my 9th birthday in 1977. I rode my dad's. 77 GT 750 around the neighborhood in the 80s. In 1999, I bought a used GS550 E and rode it for a year and then my truck motor went out. I had to sell the bike.😣 Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I bought the 2002 VL800 from a mechanic friend at work. Man, have I missed riding. Very glad to be part of the Volusia family!

Glad to see you have a sense of humor too. Whiskey lives in Georgia but never rides with anyone unless he gets his wife's permission
