What's this? & Ft Worth rack 4 sale

I have 2 racks I do not need (I think they are called Ft Worth racks) and I need to raise some funds to replace the front end I destroyed on an 01' LT. They've been in the tool box on my trailer so they will need a little clean up. They are billet aluminum so they should clean up nicely.
Also can anyone tell me what this plug with the red wire is? I don't think it plugs in to anything I have but I would like to be sure. I noticed in Kirk's video for fuel tank removal, his is not connected to anything either.

Racks are $125 each includes shipping in US.

shouldn't have any trouble selling those racks, the wire is a spare if you want to fit another 12 volt socket, that is also the wire some people make the mistake of using on the fuel pump and cant work out why it is running all the time, it is the same type of plug.

Re: What's this? & Ft Worth rack 4 sale

I believe that is a genuine Ft Worth rack for the K1200LT!

It appears that someone has added some holes... possibly for tie downs.
It's not drilled for the grab rail, and I don't see any attaching hardware (shouldn't be too difficult to fabricate).

Should also mention that if you connect that accessory plug to the fuel pump, it will run continuously, however it will be running backward, so the engine will only run if you're south of the equator.

Thank you for the information on the plug.

Also, the Ft Worth racks both have complete sets of hardware. PO had them installed up until I purchased my LT's earlier this year.
