I had seen a similar thing... I was changing/adding wiring for aux lights, and disconnected the battery. Had the tupperware all off, including the nose (with headlight) and windshield. Ran out of time that weekend (just before Thanksgiving), so the LT sat in the carport, with the tupperware hanging on hooks, for 3 more days. When I got it all back together, connected battery again, the BC temperature indicated -40F. Oops....forgot to plug in the temp sensor in the nose (under the headlight) Even after connecting it, the BC still read -40F until I got the bike out on the road for a while.
Aux light mod--I prolly should tell of that in another thread. PIAA 1100's that run as 'daytime running lights' (series wired) when running low beam. Another set of lights on RBR Manufacturing's light bar. Highbeam either 'turns the 1100's to "normal brightness"', or 'PIAAs "off", and the ones on the light bar "on"'
