Is it rubber molded with 2 contacts, one extended half an inch further than the other? If so its a power connection for adding a cigarette lighter style adapter or a battery conditioner connection.

You've got me curious about the plug as well. Just went out to and looked at my 2011 XR and I have the same empty connection as well as two that are connected (a black one and a white one). Curious to see if the XC or XCT folks have the empty connection as well but I suspect it powers something for the XCT's.

Just went out and took a look at my XCT. There is a white plug there too, but it is plugged into something. Not sure since I didn't chase it down. There is also a black plug and another small white plug which are both connected to something as well. Maybe someone who also had a XCT can comment further. :)

I was at first thinking it had something to do with the optional reverse but I guess not. Has to be something like heated seats, trunk brake lights, etc related to the tour.

U have a plug under the seat for the heated seat
The plug for the trunk is located on the left side under the side panal

You know, having my Vision apart I'm very surprised at all the open plugs. I'd think it would be best to have them with dead plugs. Over the years they can get filled with crap and therefor short things out?? Like this one in question on the XR. It's completely open to the elements.

It's for the optional tuck setup. See #2

I have the optional trunk setup and the trunk plugs into the connector behind the left side cover only. That powers everything associated to the trunk including spkrs and tail lights.

I'm thinking that the little white plug may be for dealer connection to a lap top to down load into ecu ?????? I thought I saw my dealer connect there when downloading the stg1 flash on my bike. It was a year ago so I may be mistaken. A service manual should be able to label it.

TheMike,
Concur! Wrapped all open plugs when I brought XC home to divert any issues in the future!
