    That brown connector

    Interestingly, I did try to do the brown connector mod this week, my bike does not have one, nor has it had the mod done to it either.
    The three yellow wires go into a plastic filled round connector with two other wires. A mechanic friend who was with me searched high and low for it, we had all the plastics off, the tank up and the airbox off just in case we were missing something!
    The bike is an 03 standard Mille, could it be a Euro import or something?

    Confused of Cardff!!

    if its what connects to the rec then its on the right hand side of the bike rear subframe bolted to
    you would need to remove the rear tail plastic to get acess

    there is a wiring mod you can do with the early models with regards to charging
