Can't remember where this wire goes

Finally getting things back together, and well, I can't remember where this one wire goes. The photo is terrible, but it's the wire in my hand with green painters tape on it (to help highlight it).

It's a single green wire with a small round connector.

If you can help, and know where it goes, let me know. I have looked, but just can't remember. Everything else is connected, and once I get it back to where it belongs, I can start putting the rads, and hoses back on.

Thanks a lot

You got to keep an eye one those little buggers, turn you back on-em for even a secant, it will runn off causing you to play hid and seek for hours
I hate when that happen. One time I only had 1, 5mm and I put it in my shirt pocket so not to lose it...after 20mins of looking for I remember where it was


+1 on what and where it goes

The little wire was the one that connects just below the clutch slave. I just decided to let wire lay down in what appeared to be the memory in the wire. It sort of layed itself down to the exact point where it wanted to be connect. What a good bike, she knew where it needed to be...lol..

Now I have another question. I think I know what to do with it, but thought I'd ask. The longest hose coming off the fuel take, which appears to be a breather or drain hose. It wraps all the way around the fuel pump, and has sort of a 90 degree bend in it.

Do I just run it down along the left side of the bike with the rest of the lines? I think so, but wasn't sure. It almost seems like it goes on the right side....pictures...what a good idea that would have been...lol :P

The water pump bypass hose is the one on the right side.
If you see liquid residue from it, it means your water pump bearings and seals are worn out.
The remaining hoses are on the left.
From the fuel tank, you have the fuel tank vent hose and the overflow hose.

Thanks Sub,

I would have gotten around to a reply, but a thing called work got in the way. Shame how work gets in the way of play.

Well back to it...and I think there isn't anything else to slow me down now.

Sadly with a track day coming this monday, I haven't had time to post anything up, trying to get her together fast, and I still have to work tonight...shame
