    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, a 961 newby here and wasn't sure what to search for.
    The bike is an earlier single seat sport and the connector below is hanging free - just a wondering what it does etc.

    Looks like someone's replaced the standard charge connector designed for kids radio controlled cars with a conventional power connector.

    Is there power 12 V on it ? I Can't say i've ever seen that connection before. Can you follow the wires back to their source ?

    Thanks for the feedback.
    The bike is in a row of bikes and was difficult to access, will drag it out and have a closer look in the next few days.
    I am to go back, put the battery on charge and see if we can fire it up. Tried starting it yesterday but the starter just clattered, hopefully just the battery being a bit low.

    The background is that it belonged to a close friend who, very sadly, died in an accident while riding one of his old Norton's earlier in the year.
    It won't be for a SatNav but I will check for power to it.
