It's always a good idea to identify the motorcycle you are working on.† Smile

Excellent idea!† Take a few minutes to put your bike's model and year in the signature line.† It really helps us identify what we are commenting on when giving assistance and troubleshooting tips.

The connector you are holding looks like it is the high altitude plug.† There is a matching connector with a short loop of wire that you plug in when riding above 4000 feet of altitude.† It tells the Jetronic to lean out the fuel mix to compensate for the thinner air at high altitudes.†

The only time I use mine is when I'm out West in the mountains.† I have forgotten to plug in at 6-7,000 feet and left it in down to almost sea level and honestly haven't noticed any ill effects on the performance of my K75RT.† I suspect it's more of a clean air function to meet EPA requirements than anything to improve performance.

The biggest difference I've noticed without the altitude plug is that the bike starts to idle like crap when you get up above 8,000 feet and will die if you try to idle at 10,000 feet.

Click on the Signature tab at the top of the page then put that information in your signature so it will show up as a reference below every post you make from now until the end of the world, as Point-Seven-five suggests.
