Identify Mysterious Plug and Wires

Gents,

While working a headlight issue, I saw the plug in the attached photo dangling. Any ideas what it may be for? Possibly a power cord to a farkle removed by the previous owner?

Also, while I had the top case and rear seat removed, I saw these two red wires with the ends taped. Any ideas what piece of equipment they may have been associated with?

It almost looks like a plug for Motolights???? But think it's something else.

Don't know about the front plug, but rear wires looks like it could have been an AutoCom comm system that was hooked up earlier before they came out with the connector plug

Re: Identify Mysterious Plug and Wires

The front wire appears to be part of your cb wiring. It looks as though your cb antenna is still in place according to the under seat pic. Not sure about the red wires, but I'd guess those were used for intercom, or something similar.

Re: Identify Mysterious Plug and Wires

In image one, I see a blue connector attached to the parking light wire. Is that connector leading to a relay system, possibly from a motolites switch? Or PIAA lights?
